Larry & other MHOers,

Lee must have thought that the premise, "Fortune smiles on the aggressor", will be true, in his invasion of the North. But in this invasion Gettysburg was to prove that this is not always necessarily the case!?

What say ya'll??

I would say, the premise, "defense of the high ground, will prevail", is more relevant!?

"Home field advantage" also will help. the AoP!?
"The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract."
