i agree. meade probably felt like an outsider during the battle since he had only been in commnad for three days, well six days by the time pickett's charge occured. I guess he didnt want lose what he had just won. The only thing is you dont fight a battle just to not lose. That was the difference between R.E LEE and MOST yankee commanders that preceeded Grant, they all fought to not lose while Lee fought to win, not just the battle but the war. I doubt if he ever went into a battle doubting that it would be the last, just not his personality. He fought for keeps
