Major General George Gordon Meade -- A Portrait
A new series of original paintings by Ron Lesser
Portrait is from a Mathew Brady photograph taken during the war. The photograph is in the Library of Congress.
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.
This original portrait, painted in 2006, is 8 inches by 10 inches - oil on wood panel.
