DAWN OF VICTORY: Breakthrough at Petersburg -- March 25 - April 2, 1865

DAWN OF VICTORY: Breakthrough at Petersburg -- March 25 - April 2, 1865
by Alexander, Edward S.

1-208100

After the unprecedented violence of the 1864 Overland Campaign, Union Lt. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant turned his gaze south of Richmond to Petersburg, where the railroads that supplied the Confederate capital and its defenders found their junction. Nine grueling months of constant maneuver and combat around the 'Cockade City' followed. Massive fortifications dominated the landscape, and both armies frequently pushed each other to the brink of disaster.

As March 1865 drew to a close, Grant planned one more charge against Confederate lines. Despite recent successes, many viewed this latest task as an impossibility and their trepidations had merit.

Grant ordered the attack for April 2, 1865, setting the stage for a dramatic early morning bayonet charge by his Sixth Corps across half a mile of open ground into the 'strongest line of works ever constructed in America.'
