At Gettysburg, Lee kept probing for the weak spot in the Union position. His flanking movements failed. He failed to breakthrough the Union's right flank (Culp's Hill), failed to breakthrough the Union's left flank (Round Tops and Peach Orchard), so he reasoned that the Union center must be the weak spot, thus Pickett's charge.
