Book Talk- Meade and Lee After Gettysburg

Book Talk- Meade and Lee After Gettysburg


White House and Museum of the Confederacy

Contrary to popular belief, once Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia slipped across the swollen Potomac back to Virginia the Lincoln administration pressed George Meade to cross quickly in pursuit—and he did. The two weeks that followed was a grand chess match with everything at stake—high drama filled with hard marching, cavalry charges, heavy skirmishing, and set-piece fighting that threatened to escalate into a major engagement with the potential to end the war in the Eastern Theater. Join us as author Jeffrey Hunt sheds new light on the often overlooked period.
