Doc, a good question and one that has been hotly debated for years. IMHO, taking the roundtops would not have been a decisive factor. However, if Cemetery and Culps Hill were taken, that would have made a big difference. By the way, I heard an interesting Gettysburg ghost story about the Tigers. The guide showed a spot (now paved over), which I believe would have been Winebrenner's Run where supposedly several wounded Tigers were washed away and drowned during the post-battle rainstorm and is now haunted by their spirits. The spot is almost directly across Baltimore Street from the Farnsworth House.
