On May 5 and 6, 1864, in a rugged area of tangled woods and brush on the south side of the Rapidan River in Virginia, Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee met for the first time on a Civil War battlefield. The vicious, confused fighting lasted for two days. Though no clear victor emerged, neither conceded defeat, and the death-grapple thus commenced continued for nearly a year. Now available in paperback, Edward Steere's thorough, accurate history, originally published in 1960, was the first full-scale study of the Battle of the Wilderness and remains a principal source on the conflict.
