"Meigs used his skills continually. During the Gettysburg campaign, as Meade's Army of the Potomac moved rapidly north. Meigs kept Meade's supply line shifting along with his army. In the West, Meigs personally was involved with the "cracker line" that kept Chattanooga's defenders supplied. Meigs' supply bases at Fredericksburg and Belle Plain kept Grant moving against Lee. His resupply of Sherman at Savannah in 1865 was triumph of logistics that put the Yankee army back in the field, after a 250-mile march, in new uniforms supported by top quality equipment."
