This is a 13 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the American Civil War - Key Leaders - Union - George Meade. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
George Gordon Meade was a career United States Army officer and civil engineer involved in coastal construction, including several lighthouses. He fought with distinction in the Second Seminole War and the Mexican-American War.
During the American Civil War he served as a Union general, rising from command of a brigade to the Army of the Potomac. He is best known for defeating Confederate General Robert E. Lee at the Battle of Gettysburg in 1863.
After the battle, Lee was able to retreat back into VA, and Meade received harsh criticism from President Lincoln for not finishing off the Army of Northern Virginia in its weakened state. Meade offered his resignation, but it was denied.
