Abstract:

General George Gordon Meade is best known to history as the commander of the victorious Army of the Potomac at Gettysburg. In his own lifetime meager credit was allotted him for his achievement at Gettysburg, for his long pursuit of General Robert E. Lee into Virginia, and for the furious marches his men were forced into both before and after Gettysburg, until final victory at Appomattox Courthouse. And since his death in 1872, frequent criticism has been meted out to him for not following up the victory his troops accomplished. In this account of Meade and his achievements, the author has attempted to sift the truth from War Office archives and records, from private and public documents, to assess fairly the value of Meade's services.
