|Now we're ragging on Lee. Does that mean Alan Nolan's book, 'Lee Considered,' which was roundly criticized by such ANV scholars as Bud Robertson and Robert Krick for finding too much fault in Lee when it was published back in 1991, is now worth reconsidering, as it were?
So much for segues to Sickles. Let me try one more time. If we want to courtmartial Sickles for disobeying orders, do we feel the same way about Longstreet, who might have been disobeying Lee on July 2 and July 3, and Hood, who might have disobeyed Longstreet by heading toward the Round Tops instead of the road on July 2? Heck, ol' Stonewall, when he was alive, was trying to courtmartial just about everybody in his command, wasn't he?
