Gettysburg-Culp's Hill and Cemetery Hill

This chapter describes events following the retreat of Union forces. General Ewell must have wanted to pursue the enemy, but it is likely that he began to have second thoughts when his ardor cooled and when, as a corps commander, he began to take stock of his situation and consider Lee's admonition about not bringing on a general engagement until the other divisions had arrived. Ewell had willingly pitched into the Federals from Oak Hill when their movements seemed to threaten Rodes' division, but that fight was over. An assault against Cemetery Hill would be a new battle, and General Lee himself was on the field and in command.
