For those interested, Esquire ran a series of articles on Gettysburg this past week (sorry, I've been on vacation). Both Ohio and Michigan distinguished themselves, and I thought that perhaps the history buffs on this blog who haven't seen these articles might be particularly interested in Custer's (yep, that Custer) decision to confront J.E.B. Stuart and deny Lee's plan to disrupt the American supply chain. According to Bateman, who is a former Army officer and currently a military analyst, Custer's action might well have prevented another rout along the lines of Chancellorsville.
The link is here, and the entire series is fascinating.
