To the right you will find a few columns concerning the military career of Civil War General George Gordon Meade (1815 - 1872) with particular attention paid to his command at Gettysburg.
"Meade will not be ranked by the historians with the great commanders, but his career is that of a well-trained, capable, and patriotic soldier, and he must always be remembered in the history of the war and of the country as the General who, for the longest period in its history, held the command of the Army of the Potomac, and to whom came the well-deserved good fortune of winning with this army the decisive battle of the war."
