Overland Campaign

During May and June 1864, General Ulysses S. Grant, supreme commander of all Union armies, accompanied the Army of the Potomac, under General George G. Meade, in the prosecution of Grant’s Overland Campaign during the Civil War. Union forces crossed the Rapidan River on May 4, and as the two armies sought to maintain favorable positions in relation to the Confederate capital at Richmond, Virginia, major engagements took place during the battles of the Wilderness, Spotsylvania, and Cold Harbor. The Overland Campaign ended with the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia entrenched at Petersburg and Union forces drawing up to lay siege to the city, a vital rail link to Richmond.
