How accurate is this statue of a spartan soldier?( I already know that it is supposed to have a beard and the xephos dagger was only used as a last resort when the spear breaks)

Same thing did happen with Albert Sidney Johnston. It all does feel suspicious.
I think his biggest impact would have been in the Gettysburg Campaign. Unlike General Ewell, he would most certainly have pushed to take Cemetery Hill which would have changed the layout and dynamics of the battle. Again, I think Gettysburg as it happened is more important in what it prevented more so than what it could have done for the Confederacy, because a smashing victory and the destruction of the Army of the Potomac seems rather unlikely, and such a total victory was required for the proposed peace talks Confederate Pres. Davis was to push on Lincoln to begin. Now, a...
