The two-room farmhouse of Lydia Leister, close behind the Federal line on Cemetery Ridge, became Gen. George Meade's headquarters during the battle. On the night after the second day of fighting, he had a war council with his top commanders in the room on the right. The decision they reached was to stay and fight.
