Ckule, I think Mr. Harold is right on this one. Artillery was a direct fire weapon. The Union "spotters" on LRT during the battle were not spotters in the modern sense of the word since they could not communicate directly with the batteries. Now, with that being said, if the Rebs get artillery on the Round Tops as the Federals did on July 2 and 3, the battery officers probably would have been able to direct their fire much more effectively against the Union line. As an aside, I don't think the ANV had a field telegraph system, but I'm not positive.
