A Campaign Of Giants - The Battle For Petersburg: Volume 1: From The Crossing Of The James To The Crater
- Civil War
Next stop, Appomattox
Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee squared off for more than nine months in their struggle for Petersburg, the key to the Confederate capital at Richmond. After failing to bull his way into Petersburg, Grant isolated the city, forcing Lee to abandon it on April 2, 1865. A week later, Lee surrendered at Appomattox Court House.
The opening of A. Wilson Greene’s sweeping three-volume history takes us from Grant's crossing of the James in mid-June, 1864 to the fateful Battle of the Crater on July 30. With new perspectives on operational and tactical choices, the experiences of common soldiers and civilians, and the significant role of the United States Colored Troops, it is destined to be the definitive account of a watershed campaign.
