well if you know how civil war units are organized...they all fight together meaning that if you fight in one corp you all stayed together...but on the third days battle there was an attack by Ewell on Culp's hill where if you look at the monuments are all mixed up...meaning that Meade had deployed part of the 6th corp to the Culps' hill. so i personally think that Meade had to have everyone get back into line. and that probably took awhile...also like someone else said too the Union army probably was in no shape to fight it out.
