When one thinks of the American Civil War, the images of the Battle of Gettysburg comes to mind and it's little wonder. The Battle of Gettysburg was fought July 1–3, 1863, in and around the town of Gettysburg, PA, by Union and Confederate forces during the American Civil War.

The battle involved the largest number of casualties of the entire war and is often described as the war's turning point. Union Major General George Meade's Army of the Potomac defeated attacks by Confederate General Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia, ending Lee's attempt to invade the North.

The battle was marked by fierce fighting all three days, questionable leadership on the part of the south, and the first time the union had won a major devastating battle that would turn the fortunes of war.

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. He was promoted to command the Army of the Potomac just days before the Battle of Gettysburg broke out.

He is best known for defeating Confederate General Robert E. Lee at the Battle of Gettysburg in 1863 but came under extreme criticism from President Lincoln for not finishing off the Army of Northern Virginia in its weakened state and allowing Lee to retreat back into VA. Meade offered his resignation, but it was denied.
