Meade might have done better had he not had to deal with some of his own generals trying to stab him in the back. Sickles and Butterfield, and possibly others, actively tried to discredit Meade following Gettysburg. Although Butterfield would be transferred to the Army of the Cumberland there were probably those who continued to undermine Meade prior to Grant coming east.
