Just wanted to finish this thread of 'Gettysburg being overrated' by stating that even William Faulkner said
that the whole war after the battle of Gettysburg: "was a long walking backwards slowly."

I am fairly certain he meant this in reference to the south's war effort after the battle of Gettysburg.

Every person has their individual opinions regarding the significance of Gettysburg. But you cannot reasonably argue that general Lee or the ANV was ever the same fighting force
after July 3, 1863.
