GDG- Harry Heth and the First Morning at Gettysburg

  Exactly, this man was a Corps commander - a third of the ANV - with no per 
se, controlling hand. Indirectly, there are 3 Division commanders in 
control, and Marse Robert has enough on his plate beside directing tactical 
directions to the 3rd Corps. If Hill is that sensitive to his illness, why 
not bring up a temporary Corps commander (vis a vis - Newton replacing 
Doubleday - Union side). Hill was untested in Corps command, what does Lee 
have to lose. (Also - per Peter's post - Hill contracted a venereal disease 
as a young cadet at West Point, on a jaunt in New York City.)

Regards,
Tom B.

Esteemed GDG Member Contributes:
Where is Hill? That is the question throughout the Battle of Gettysburg? His 
body was there, but he doesn't seem to be a factor at all
during any of the fighting. As a Corps commander he should be right on top 
of things, but that does not seem to be the case.
Take a look at any of the fighting his III Corps is involved in here, and 
you find that Hill does not seem to be involved in any of it.
