George Meade, best known as the final commander of the Army of the Potomac, began the war as a brigadier, commanding the Pennsylvania Reserves and eventually the 5th Corps on the Peninsula, Second Bull Run, Antietam, Fredericksburg, and Chancellorsville. But it was at Gettysburg that Meade made his biggest mark, having assumed command of the Army only days earlier. Meade led the Army of the Potomac through the remainder of the war from the Wilderness to Petersburg and Appomattox.
