Synopsis: Robert E. Lee faced the most monumental crisis of his military career on the morning of April 2, 1865. By sunrise that morning, the Union 6th Corps had punched a huge hole in Lee's outer line, southwest of Petersburg. He needed time for reinforcements to arrive from Richmond, but how could his depleted army buy that time? Amidst overwhelming odds, this suicide mission fell to a handful of Confederates who made a desperate last stand at Fort Gregg. Famous historian Douglas Southall Freeman called this epic fight "one of the most dramatic incidents of an overwhelming day," and yet it has been overshadowed by all the other historic events of April 1865. Fourteen Union soldiers received the Medal of Honor for their bravery at Fort Gregg. Many battle-scarred veterans from both sides described this clash as the nastiest of their four-year war experience. The Confederate Alamo is the first battle study ever written about this strategic fight.

From the Author: I found out about the Battle of Fort Gregg when I researched and wrote my first book, Red Clay to Richmond: Trail of the 35th Georgia Infantry Regiment. Some of these Georgians had the misfortune of defending Ft. Gregg. I was astounded at what happened there and I was even more amazed that so few few people knew about the fort and the strategic significance of that "last stand." I grew up in Richmond and have been a student of the War my whole life and I had never heard of this battle until my 35th Georgia research. I discovered only a handful of magazine articles over the last 25 years had been written about the battle, so I decided to begin digging in the fall of 2005 to find out more. I uncovered reams of primary material much of it never before in print. These items filled 2 boxes and they weighed about 50 pounds. When I found this much stuff I realized I had quite a story to tell. I still find it remarkable that I am the first historian to write about this epic fight that was filled with so much drama. My prayer is that The Confederate Alamo does justice to the courage and sacrifice of the brave Union and Confederate soldiers who fought at Fort Gregg on April 2, 1865.
