Thanks for the insight that histiorians use quotes from participants. They also assess the credibility of those statements and are aware of the participant's leanings. Dodge was hardly an objective observer and he used statements from two officers who had reason to deflect responsibility for what happened on May 2 . I'd like to see a list of the units that Howard and Devens placed in position to receive an attack from the west/their right flank - complete with sources.

Right you are - Pula sets out the text of the May 2 9:30 AM directive to Howard. Pula points the finger in Howard's direction. You denigrate Pula's work. The dots are directly connected.

Every historian of the Battle of Chancellorsville includes a discussion of Hooker's order. Let's just say that in analyzing Pula's work, I found it extremely biased and not up to the standard expected of professionally trained historians, of which I am one. 'Nuff said. Over and out.
