Let me put this out there. First off I know I'm talking about one of the legends of the confederacy here. More of a myth than a man anymore, but hear me out. Both men were taken out in their primes, mid war. We all know the debates and what if's, when it comes to stonewall. Some speculate the entire war might have been different. I'm not one of these, but I do think his continued impact after Chancellorsville could have changed somethings. But when I think of the Union side, and when Reynolds was killed it's totally different. The Union was on it's heels, needing a win and now had Bobby Lee on their own turf. We all know the story, but coming very close to victory in Gettysburg. The confederacy was riding high in July 1863. They had proven leadership and had several large victories. The Union was short on proven leadership, and Reynolds was one of the only proven leaders around for the Union. Many have said including Shelby Foote he might have been the finest general in the Union at this time. He fell the first day at Gettysburg and I wonder what happens if he's there all three days or the rest of the war. So putting all the lore, hero worship aside. Tactically speaking, military leadership speaking, who was the bigger loss?
