|I'm falling onto Chancellorsville here as I think of this. I think Jackson might have suggested Longstreet attack as Lee had ordered but then he take his corps and try a flanking attack. Have Meades attention focused on his center so he doesn't expect an attack on the right or left flanks. I don't know, I'm probably off the mark there. But my thinking is that Jackson might have believed that after two days one of the flanks might have been weakened to strengthen the other.
