well one of the things that have always made me wonder is in the time it would take the confederates the time to approach the union center meade would have been able to bring reenforcements from nearly any point of his line. plus with the cannonade that lasted two hours the federals had to know an attack would come and when that attack came it would be a massive assault. i think lee's best strategy would have been to stage a retreat on the second night and put up concealed positions on herr's ridge or one of the other ridges west of gettysburg. i dont think anyother battlefield provided better defensive positions for the federals.
