“Moving and Fighting the Army of the Potomac during the Gettysburg Campaign”
The talk will cover what it took to feed, shoe, clothe, equip and arm 91,000 officers and men and what it took to feed, harness and shoe 60,000 horses and mules, not to mention what it took to supply the army with the necessary ammunition for all the branches of service (infantry, cavalry and artillery) and to be prepared to care for, and to care for, thousands of sick and wounded as well as thousands of prisoners of war. The talk will then cover what General Meade did to address all those matters, and what happened to make those efforts, in large measure, unsuccessful.
