Most historians have come to the conclusion that artillery did not rank high on the list of military tools available to winning a battle. Artillery, however, would seem to be a powerful weapon to use to win a battle.At the Battle of Gettysburg, commanding General Meade had an ample amount of artillery batteries. His 372 pieces of artillery was supported by 8,000 men.
