|Great point Joe. With spanglers grove behind them even in control of the ridge the round tops still would have provided a higher artillery platform. I beleive they would have required some work however. And if it was determined that taking that hill wrecked the Getttysburg line there were still fresh AoP trops to counter march and hold pipe creek. Which would have left Ewell still in the scape goat position of sacraficing so many erreplaceable troops to gain a position that really didn't improve the overall tactical position of the ANV. This after Marse Robert told him only if an advantage can be gained. Old bald head could not get a break.
