Any adjective describing the Army of the Potomac certainly applies more so to the Army of Northern Virginia.

However, the AotP had ample ammunution supplies.

In addition, the 6th and 12th corps were relatively untouched. Even the 5th corps had less than half the casualties of the other four army corps. In effect Meade had 3 corps that were combat-ready; Lee had zero.

Also, the 3rd day had been the 'easiest' for the bulk of Meade's army after fighting on the narrow fronts of Culps Hill and Pickett's charge.
