Army of the Potomac

The Army of the Potomac was the primary Union fighting force in the Eastern Theater during the Civil War, from 1861 to 1865. During the course of the war, the Army of the Potomac was commanded by generals Irvin McDowell, George B. McClellan, Ambrose Burnside, Joseph Hooker, and George G. Meade. Meade commanded the Army of the Potomac during its victory at the Battle of Gettysburg in July 1863, and through the successful Overland Campaign, the siege of Petersburg, and the surrender of the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox. Although Meade was in command of the Army of the Potomac, General Ulysses S. Grant, commander of all Union armies, maintained headquarters in the field along with Meade.
