  • Nice work! That's correct!
    Answer:

    Fredericksburg. The Wilderness (May 5-7, 1864) was the opening battle of Grant's Overland Campaign in 1864. The battles of Spotsylvania Court House, North Anna, and Cold Harbor, would follow in close succession. The bloody battles of this campaign would match two of the preeminent military commanders of the Civil War. Despite deftly parrying each of Grant's moves, each of these bloody battles would reduce the offensive fighting capacity of Lee's smaller Army of Northern Virginia. Grant would eventually pin Lee outside of Petersburg and then in 1865 receive Lee's surrender at Appomattox Court House.
