Hi Larry,

The very topic I mentioned earlier, how was Lee, & the ANV able to escape back to Virginia, escaping at Williamsport!

Also a couple of short videos on the topic: The second one is more academic, from a Gettyburg National Battlefield Guide & author!

With the high waters, wounded, Union Forces trying to stop him, it had to be very stressful for Lee, & the ANV!?

Thanks, & comments anyone?

BTW would a more aggressive commander like Grant succeeded??
