Who Was George G. Meade? with Dr. Allen Guelzo, Henry R. Luce Professor of the Civil War Era at Gettysburg College and Author

George Gordon Meade won fame as the victor of the Battle of Gettysburg, but not lasting fame. Unlike the commanders of other great battles (Wellington at Waterloo, Eisenhower at D-Day), Meade has always stood in the shadow of the man who lost the battle, Robert E. Lee. The reasons for this mysterious neglect have a great deal to do with Meade's politics, his tactical performance, and his personality, and they form one of the most puzzling aspects of "the secret history of the battle of Gettysburg."
