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.

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.
