G.G. Meade was an American citizen, born in Cadiz, Spain while his father served the U.S. as a naval agent. He was allowed into West Point, so I don't think Meade's U.S. citizenship status would have been questioned.

Can anybody enlighten me {and other CWi readers} about Meade's aborted attempt to run for the presidency? I'd never heard that about him. Winfield Scott Hancock, yes, but not George Gordon Meade. Thanks, in advance, for the education.
