Well....General Mead told me that Chamberlain's charge down Little Round Top, caught the Confederates by surprise by utilizing a "right wheel" manuever which out-flanked the Rebels on their right. The element of surprise was so complete, Chamberlain's men took about 200 prisoners and held the ground in the process.<quoted text>
Great question Zoltar.
Maybe you can use your influence to also obtain an explanation for the rest of us as to the events at Little Round Top, especially the success of Chamberlain's bayonet charge. How the knives beat the rifles is always been a quandary to me.
Anyway, carry on.
General Lee has not answered my question. I guess he is busy taking care of Traveler.
