Figure is great for American Civil War enthusiasts!

As a West Point graduate, Meade fought in both the Second Seminole and the Mexican–American wars. He then served in the United States Army Corps of Topographical Engineers where his duties included construction of coastal fortifications. His Civil War service began by building defenses around Washington D.C. He fought in several campaigns as a division commander before being appointed to command the Army of the Potomac just three days before the Battle of Gettysburg. With a keen engineer’s eye, he organized his forces on favorable ground and repelled a series of massive assaults throughout the next two days. It was the North’s greatest victory and the South’s “high water mark.”
