He outranked Meade, and under normal circumstances might have taken command of the Army of the Potomac. But he had already commanded the army during the disastrous Fredericksburg campaign, and there was no chance he would ever be allowed to command it again. So he reported directly to Grant. It made an awkward command situation, and the good-natured Burnside eventually offered to forego his seniority and take orders from Meade.
Lieutenant General Ulysses S. Grant commanded the entire United States Army but chose to make his headquarters in the field with the Army of the Potomac. General Robert E. Lee commanded the Army of Northern Virginia. For over a year he had successfully defended the Rappahannock River line. Major General George G. Meade had commanded the Army of the Potomac since the victory at Gettysburg. Many wanted to replace him for his lack of progress in the nine months since, but Grant kept him on.
