One can do all the "what if'ing he wants" but irregardless of how successful Lee was on July 2 or 3, Mead still had an ace in the hole - the entire bohemeth 6th Corp and part of the 5th Corp to trump whatever success Lee had. Needless to say imho, Gettysburg was a brainfart for Lee and many of his subordinates and the finest hour for Meade and some of his underlings.
