> The title was very unfortunate.  Overly sensational, like something you'd find on a supermarket tabloid.  Beneath Gettysburg Magazine's dignity, IMO.


I haven't read the article but I had that impression from the title 
alone.  I appreciate the analysis of Lee's condition but the implication 
is Healthy Lee = victory at Gettysburg, or wherever a healthy Lee would 
have chosen to fight.  That is a massive leap.
