If Ewell had allowed Early to take Cemetery ridge pre Day 1 - it could have been a whole different story ! Course I'm not regretting that- though I'm a southerner (Texan) I'm glad the North won... the South was wrong, and I abhor bigotry , not to mention slavery.
Lee was overconfident he should have listened to Longstreet and pulled out, moved toward Washington and made the Union fight on the ground of HIS choosing. But - that's history.
I highly recommend the Book, The Killer Angels by Michael Shaara if anyone is interested in the battle and what went on behind the scenes. The movie Gettysburg follows the book pretty closely except Pickett's charge. IF they'd followed the book, it'd been another Normandy beach scene like from Private Ryan only worse !
