"AP Hill's health was far too fragile for heavy reliance."

Sadly, far too true.  I thought of AP Hill instantly when I saw that someone had listed "physical capacity" as one of qualities for greatness.

I believe that, as a general, AP Hill had true greatness in him.  And that his physical infirmities notably interfered with his reaching and maintaining his true potential.

Yes, Hampton was a tiger, among other things.  I believe he was about 40 years old when the war broke out?  And, it would seem, in his prime.
