I agree. In the strategic sense, the Vicksburg campaign and defeat doomed the South. The defeat at Gettysburg was frosting on Mr Lincoln's cake. Even if Ewell had grown a pair and taken Cemetery Hill, even if Longstreet had stopped pouting and gotten his rear in gear earlier, I don't think a Confederate victory in PA would have changed the outcome of the War for the better, for either the North or the South.
