It is difficult to imagine an attack on the 3rd Corps on Cemetery Ridge being *more* successful the actual attack up the Emmittsburg road.

The ridge position is well supported with secure flanks. The road position allows converging fire and is unsupprted forcing hancock to weaken *his* position by sending troops to bail out Sickles.

Basically there are *no* targets in Longstreet's en echelon line of attack until Sickles places them there.
