Battle of Spotsylvania Court House Chris Mackowski talked about the May 1864 Battle of Spotsylvania Court House, which pitted Ulysses S. Grant and his Union forces against Robert E. Lee and the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia. Mr. Mackowski detailed the movements and military tactics employed by Generals Lee and Grant, and gave special attention to the Union assaults at parts of the battlefield known as the “Mule Shoe” and “Bloody Angle.” After two weeks of fighting, the armies disengaged without a clear victor, but tactically General Lee failed to stop to General Grant’s drive south toward the Confederate capital of Richmond.

This talk was part of the third annual Emerging Civil War Symposium at Stevenson Ridge, with the theme of “Great Attacks of the Civil War.” close
