Southern Son, you can ponder "ifs" from the start of Lee's advance from winter camp in Virginia to Gettysburg and for every minute of every day at Gettysburg and every minute of Lee's retreat afterward. The entire campaign is rife with "if", "what if" and "if only" possibilities and scenarios.

For a book you might enjoy that does treat in detail an alternative history of the Battle of Gettysburg, read the novel Gettysburg  by Newt Gingrich. It is available in paperback and imagines a scenario in which Lee is the victor. It is available in paperback. (I threw my copy in the trash.)
