Abstract : This is a study of the actions taken by General Meade during the Gettysburg Campaign. It analyzes the decisions he made and what factors and information he had available upon which to base his decisions. The focus is on the operational level of war rather than on the tactics of the battle. Primary sources include the Official Records (after action reports and messages), Congressional Reports and the personal writtings of participants.
