This chapter describes the assembly of General Meade's corps. With the arrival of the Sixth Corps nearly all of the infantry of the Army of the Potomac was at hand. The march of over thirty miles was one of the epic feats of the campaign. In retrospect it can be said that the addition of this large number of fine soldiers to the ranks of the Army of the Potomac at Gettysburg further tipped the scales in its favor and made a victory for General Lee highly improbable.
