Re: Sinclair Dates

Being a civil war buff i noticed the date of Meade defeating Lee as the 4th 
of July, whereas i always thought it was the 3rd of July as hostilities ended 
that evening?
 Vicksburg was surrendered to Grant on the 4th of July but Gettysburg, having 
been fought on the 1st,2nd &3rd of July, was attributed as a victory to the 
Union forces under General George Gordon  Meade on the 3rd . Just curiouis as 
to your source
for the date of the 4th?     Glenn M.
