Barry i believe that if Lee's orders would have been followed then the rebels could have taken the position but with ewell starting the attack early, the artillery ordinance being flawed, and stuart being repelled before getting into the federal rear the attack was doomed to fail. I'll probably catch hell for saying this but IMO, the biggest factor for the union victory at Gettysburg was shear luck.
