Do you see the risk Lee took at Chacellorsville?  If you do, Vicksburg was very similar in that regard.  Lee and Grant were both outnumbered had the two wings of the opponent's armies acted in concert and aggressively the risk taken by Lee/ Grant could have been disastrous.  Instead the opponent acted like a stunned duck instead, due to the audacity of Lee/Grant.
