He masterfully shifted his troops from one threatened sector to another and earned the thanks of Congress and an appointment as a brigadier in the regulars, although he was heavily criticized for allowing Lee to escape. In the spring of 1864 newly appointed General-in-Chief U. Grant set up his headquarters with Meade's army.This cumbersome arrangement worked out surprisingly well. He fought through the Overland and Petersburg campaigns, earning Grant's respect and being considered for command in the Shenandoah. At Grant's request he was advanced to major general in the regular army.
He served in the Appomattox Campaign. Mustered out of the volunteer service, he continued in the regular army, performing Reconstruction duty in the South.
