Lt. Col. Theodore Lyman

Theodore Lyman joined Major General George Gordon Meade's Army of the Potomac staff in September, 1863 as a Lt. Colonel in the Massachusetts Militia, and Aid-de-Camp to the general.. The above sketch is one which is in the first pages of the book, "Meade's Army, The Private Notebooks of Lt. Col. Theodore Lyman," from which the following material was taken.  During his year with the staff, Col. Lyman maintained a notebook and a series of maps on a daily / weekly basis, showing the positioning and efforts of the  Army of the Potomac during his time with the staff .  The following comments and maps will be those taken from this book as the army moves through the months following Col. Lyman's joining the staff.
