Gen'l Imboden

I think its one of the most overlooked feats of the entire campaign. As mentioned Gen'l was quite upset with Imboden. Along with his defeat during the campaign. I'm sure I read that Imboden's lateness caused a chain reaction of tardiness. Law's brigade was late in joing Longstreet for day two because he had to wait for Pickett to come up to guard the wagons and Pickett could not take part in the 2nd days battle because Imboden did not come up with the greatest of speed. Lee was pretty upset at the delay.
