Meade / by Dave Hileman

George Meade was the Union commanding general at Gettysburg but gets blamed as often for “letting” Lee escape as for the victory he achieved having been appointed to the post three or so days before the battle. Here he is shown on his horse, Old Baldy, who was wounded on three different occasions and still out lived the general by ten years and was the riderless horse at General Meade’s funeral procession.
