Cornelius Wheelers diary
August 12, 1863
General Meade is a tall, slim, gray-bearded man. He wears glasses, an old slouched hat, a blue blouse with corduroy pants tucked into his long jack boots. He is ungainly in looks and action, plain of speech, familiar and free in conversation when not occupied with business. He has the confidence of the President to a high degree.
