It is May 4, 1864 and Ulysses Grant starts to move the Army of the Potomac south. His objective is not the capture Richmond, but the destruction of Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia. Lee, a thirty five year veteran and a hero of the Mexican War is the Confederacy’s most able general. However, his experience and abilities will be trumped by the preponderance of men and equipment available to the union forces. Not quite a year later, after thousands of casualties on both sides, the Lee and Grant will meet in a small parlor in Appomattox and the War Between the States will draw to an end. Read how Grant closes Lee’s avenues of escape and applies pressure on the besieged Army of Northern Virginia in Petersburg. Learn how a festive lunch may have been the simple event that indirectly caused the Confederate line to finally crumble and precipitate the final retreat to Appomattox.
