Historians and officials from the National Park Service commemorated the conclusion of the Overland Campaign, which took place in Virginia in May and June of 1864. In keynote remarks, Civil War scholar James Robertson described Union General Ulysses S. Grant’s crusade to “destroy the Southern Confederacy,” which culminated in the last major battle of the campaign at Cold Harbor. There, Robertson said, Confederate General Robert E. Lee earned his greatest victory of the war. But, he said it wasn’t enough to stop Grant from continuing his march and besieging Lee and his men at Petersburg. close
