|I stand to believe that if Stonewall Jackson had survived Chancellorsville then the south would have most definetly won Gettysburg. I know ill get alot of angry messages for saying this but in my opinion T.J Jackson was a more competent general then Robert E lee. His tactics in the Shanadoah valley campaign was flawless. But anyway back to the original subject; if jackson was alive and present at gettysburg there would have been a much better chance for victory on the first day. While Gen. Ewell declined to take culp's hill Jackson would have jumped at the chance to defeat the federals during their most vunerable moment. also instead of longstreet taking all day to move his troops into position on the second day jackson would have pushed his men to get there quickly giving his forces more time to take advantage of any sucesses. But anyway i would love to hear what you have to say about this or any other what ifs about the war.
