LBG Mary Turk-Meena ‘s 11 June 2024 “George Meade: The Man, His Work, His Legacy”

Famously, George Meade is ordered to take command of the Union Army of the Potomac on June 28, 1863, a mere three days before the Battle of Gettysburg. He takes over an Army on a long losing streak. In those 3 days of preparation and during the 3 days of battle George Meade turns this spectacularly unsuccessful organization into a winner. Not known as a charismatic leader, how is this turnaround achieved? What does George Meade do to inspire his troops? Is he just lucky? Or is he the beneficiary of a poor performance by the Army of Northern Virginia? This program explores the man, George Meade, and his actions in late June and early July 1863 and the highs and lows of his legacy to try to answer these questions.
