Hello everbody

I was thinking the other day about general Sickles, one of the corps commanders at Gettysburg who advanced his corps and almost destroyed the whole Union line.  I believe I read somewhere that he had been a mental case before the war.  I personally believe that if it hadn't been for men like Colonel Joshua Chaberlain, that the Union would've been defeated at Gettysburg.

Does anyone know any more information about General Sickles?

Thanks
