General Meade managed his troop movements well at the battle of Gettysburg and staved off possible disaster. When Lee retreated on July 4th, the wounded army of the potomac followed. However, Lee managed to escape to cross the Potomac, before Meade's army could engage him. The failure to crush Lee's army haunted Meade the rest of his life.
