|Since we re discussing Gettysburd artillery. What is the opinion of the members as to the effect that Mead placing Gen. Hunt in charge of all artillery versus the corps commanders deploying and directing "their" individual components of the long arm. As any Gettysburg student knows Hancock still ordered his batteries to answer the Confererate shelling prepairing for the Picket,Pettigrew, Trimble charge. Does anyone feel that Hunt pulling back the Union guns during that shelling really convinced the Southern artillery that they were disabling the Union guns? I am happy to see some intrest in discussion of Civil War topics.
