Agree that Sickles move to the Emmitsburg Road area with his flanks in the air was a disasterous move for the AOP. Had he stayed in his original position his left would have been secured by the Round Tops and if attacked by Longstreet there he could have been easily supported by Sykes and Hancocks Corps. I've always been interested in Sickles since he shot one of my distant relatives, Phillop Barton Key.
