Joseph Benjamin Oakleaf, a "Big Five" collector of Lincoln memorabilia, writes on the historical context of the Battle of Gettysburg and the connections between Abraham Lincoln, General Meade, and Robert E. Lee. In particular, Oakleaf discusses a letter Lincoln wrote, but never sent, to General Meade. In this letter, Lincoln expressed his disappointment to Meade for not capturing Lee, despite having won the Battle of Gettysburg, which could have ended the Civil War.
