Abstract : From June 1863 to March 1864 George G. Meade was in sole command of the Army of the Potomac against Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia. Meade took command early on a June morning and a few days later was a national hero, the victor of Gettysburg. For the next nine months Meade and Lee maneuvered their Armies attempting to destroy their opponents force and to bring down the political system for which it fought. The operations were incredibly difficult due to miserable weather, poor communications and inept subordinate commanders.
