Major General George Gordon Meade

Meade took over command of the Army of the Potomac just a few days before the battle of Gettysburg.


After his victory at Gettysburg Meade received a promotion to brigadier general in the regular army and the Thanks of Congress which commended Meade "... and the officers and soldiers of [the Army of the Potomac], for the skill and heroic valor which at Gettysburg repulsed, defeated, and drove back, broken and dispirited, beyond the rappahannock the veteran army of the rebellion."


 Meade himself is a Perry metal miniature, the other guys are all Perry plastics. This will be the Union army command stand at our re fight in a couple of months time. The flag was stolen from the Internet

  9. It's always nice to see you posting sir. You've done a fine job with this and the basing is excellent here. I like the flower tufts you've used here. That little spot of red is just perfect.

  12. Rodger! I can't believe it.....you've painted up some pesky Federals! You've made a fantastic job of this vignette but I hope this isn't a sign that you are turning to the dark side?
