Re: George Gordon Meade's Explanation
Dennis, all I know for certain is Meade would have been pursuing the all time greatest army in North American and he knew it. Had Lee been on the defense at Gettysburg, the outcome would have been different and he knew it. Lee was a better commander and he knew it. The ANV was devasted, but most of the AoP was exhausted and in no condition to pursue them. Meade was over his head the whole time and yet, he would have to out do himself to lose.
