I was originally going to do one massive episode on the coming of ‘total war’ in 1864, but it was getting too unwieldy so I decided to break it into 2 episodes, one covering Grant’s campaign in Virginia and another covering Sherman’s campaign in Georgia. Here is the first of those.
Join CJ as he discusses:
- The Battle of Olustee
- Attrition and trench warfare
- Grant’s Overland campaign, including the Battles of the Wilderness, Spotsylvania Court House, Cold Harbor, and Petersburg
