This copy of Everett’s Oration belonged to Major General George G. Meade, the commander of the Army of the Potomac, who won the Battle of Gettysburg. Meade was unable to attend the dedication ceremony and noted in his statement of regret, read aloud there, that “this army has duties to perform which will not admit of its being represented on the occasion.”
