Meadville in Southern Victory Edit
In 1942 Brigadier General Irving Morrell launched a major attack against the Confederate flank from Meadville, Pennsylvania. A second force attacked the other flank simultaneously from Parkersburg, West Virginia. On the first day, the U.S. forces met stiff but ineffectual resistance from the Mexican Army defending the Confederate center. After breaking through this "crust" the U.S. met little further resistance and the two forces linked up in Lafayette, Ohio, and thus surrounded the main Confederate Army in Pittsburgh.
