"Thirty thousand men was the minimum of force necessary for the work"
- Gen. James Longstreet
Longstreet wrote this some years after the war, although he knew at the time that 12,500 men would most likely not be able to break the Union center. If Lee had sent 30,000 men across that field, would the charge have been successful?
