Quote

Lieutenant General James Longstreet:
[Lee and Longstreet are discussing Harrison's report on the Union army on the night of 30 June]
He says the lead element is here with the Third Corps...
[he points on the map]

Lieutenant General James Longstreet:
... the Sixth right behind...
[he points to a different spot]

Lieutenant General James Longstreet:
... supported by a column of Federal cavalry. Seven corps altogether. The First and Eleventh are above Taneytown, and there's more cavalry two hours east. There may be as many as 100,000 altogether.
General Robert E. Lee:
Do you believe the man, this Mr. Harrison?
Lieutenant General James Longstreet:
No choice. Oh, you remember him, sir; the actor from Mississippi?
General Robert E. Lee:
An actor? We move on the word of an actor?
Lieutenant General James Longstreet:
Can't afford not to.
General Robert E. Lee:
[Lee takes off his glasses and sits down in a camp chair]
There would be some word from General Stuart. General Stuart would not leave us blind.
Lieutenant General James Longstreet:
Oh, one other thing. Hooker's been replaced. George Meade's the new commander. Harrison read it in the Yankee papers.
General Robert E. Lee:
[thoughtfully]
George Meade. Pennsylvania man. Meade would be cautious, I think. Take him some time to get organized. Perhaps we should move more swiftly. There may be an opportunity here.
Lieutenant General James Longstreet:
Yes, sir.
General Robert E. Lee:
Well...
[Lee gets up and walks back over to the map table]

General Robert E. Lee:
... no reason to delay. I think we should concentrate here.
[he points to a spot on the map]

General Robert E. Lee:
All the roads converge just east of this gap, and this junction will be very necessary.
Lieutenant General James Longstreet:
Yes, sir.
General Robert E. Lee:
I left my spectacles over there. What is the name of this town?
Lieutenant General James Longstreet:
[Longstreet leans over and reads the name on the map]
"Gettysburg."
General Robert E. Lee:
Very well.
