"I think the Union Army had something to do with it."- I've heard that before.  It has a certain ring to it.
Zod: I'm reasonably certain Pickett said that upon being asked why "his" charge failed.

HankC:

En echelon attacks are wave-like. Each succeeding unit waits for the unit on theiir flank (echelon) to engage.
If a line steps off simultaneously but approaches the opposing line obliquely, isn't the effect the same? Or are we talking technically precise terms? I don't speak technical, so I'm probably wrong.
