I agree with Joe--it was more terrain than the loss of Jackson as far as Culp's Hill was concerned. Have you walked Culp's Hill, in summer, csa? Granted, I have done it not under fire, without carrying a pack, rifle, etc., but it's not any easy trek even without those. I don't think the Longstreet-Pickett-Pettigrew fields can be equally compared to Culp's Hill, IMO. And remember, the Confederates who broke through at the Angle lost the position almost immediately--and so their gain was what?
