TD, all that is correct, but I'm just not sure who else could have taken over. I just can't see Ewell staying in command very long and AP Hill is constantly ill at the worst times (not to mention they are both outranked by numerous other officers). What do you think of E.K. Smith coming East or perhaps P.G.T. Beaureguard? There are really just not many excellent General officers available to the Confederacy in 1864.
I believe Richard Taylor should have been given a chance.
