ID: 334642625

University of North Carolina Press, Chapel Hill, 1997.. 283 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0807823341 B&w photographs, maps/battle plans, reproductions. "In the spring of 1864, in the vast scrub forest that spread south from Virginia's Rapidan and Rappahannock Rivers, Ulysse s S. Grant and Robert E. Lee met in battle for the first time. The Wilderness campaign of May 5-6 initiated an epic confrontation between these two commanders - one that would finally end, eleven months later, with Lee's surrender at Appomat t o x . T he contributors to this volume bring modern scholarship and fresh insight to bear on the issues and leaders of the Wilderness campaign. Their essays explore the campaign's background, for example, by training an often-revisionist lens on e xp ec ta t io ns among civilians in the North and South, morale among officers and soldiers in both armies, and the strategic plans of Lee and Grant. Other essays assess the shaky performance of Union cavalry leaders Philip H. Sheridan and Jame s H arr iso n W il s on, the controversial actions of Confederate corp commanders Richard S. Ewell and A.P.Hill, and the often overlooked service of Lewis A. Grant and his Vermont Brigade. Finally, two of the most famous elements of the fighting i n th e Wi lder ness - th e 'L ee to the Rear' episode and James Longstreet's flank attack - are reconstructed in impressive detail." Minor wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has some minor erinkling. Near Fine/Near Fine., University of North Carolina Press, Chapel Hill, 1997.
