I so totally agree with you, Orphan. That is why "what if...?" scenarios are so imponderable because every other factor would have to remain exactly the same, with only the one variable under consideration being changed.

I also agree completely that Wade Hampton would most likely never have done the run around Union forces as he headed up to Gettysburg. In fact, maybe few cavalry leaders would have done exactly what Stuart did, but that is what makes Stuart, Stuart. (And I am glad about it, because he makes such interesting reading. I'll go even further and say most Civil War cavalry officers on either side make compelling reading.)
