Cold Harbor, Grant and Lee, May 26–June 3, 1864

History - 2007-04-01

Here, Grant is not a callous butcher, and Lee does not wage a perfect fight. Within the pages of Cold Harbor, Rhea separates fact from fiction in a charged, evocative narrative.

About this book
Gordon Rhea's gripping fourth volume on the spring 1864 campaign-which pitted Ulysses S. Grant against Robert E. Lee for the first time in the Civil War-vividly re-creates the battles and maneuvers from the stalemate on the North Anna River through the Cold Harbor offensive. Cold Harbor: Grant and Lee, May 26-June 3, 1864 showcases Rhea's tenacious research which elicits stunning new facts from the records of a phase oddly ignored or mythologized by historians. In clear and profuse tactical detail, Rhea tracks the remarkable events of those nine days, giving a surprising new interpretation of the famous battle that left seven thousand Union casualties and only fifteen hundred Confederate dead or wounded. Here, Grant is not a callous butcher, and Lee does not wage a perfect fight. Within the pages of Cold Harbor, Rhea separates fact from fiction in a charged, evocative narrative. He leaves readers under a moonless sky, with Grant pondering the eastward course of the James River fifteen miles south of the encamped armies.

About this book
When June Cameron and Paul Holsinger set out in 1983 in Paul's ancient 26-foot wooden sloop, "Wood Duck," to cross the perilous Hecate Strait and explore the weather-beaten west coast of the Queen Charlotte Islands (now known as Haida Gwaii), they knew they would face danger. But June had raced her own sailboat for years and Paul was a gifted mechanic, so they put trepidation aside and answered the call to adventure. Their journey taught them much about the challenges faced by the area's First Nations inhabitants--and much about why skippers do not sail the outer coast of the Charlottes for pleasure. There are no lighthouses, and many rocks and reefs are uncharted. June and Paul's survival would depend on cautious, observant navigation--and luck. "26 Feet to the Charlottes" takes readers to remote beaches, uninhabited First Nations villages, abandoned mines and sheltered coves. Compelling reading for sailors and armchair adventurers alike, June's story conveys the joys and challenges of travelling by boat and living off the sea, and recalls a coast that has changed dramatically in the last century.

    Grant's regret

    Cold Harbor is famous as the battle Grant regretted.The battle where the Army of the Potomac sustained about five causalities for every two inflicted on the Army of Northern Virginia.A sad unhappy place where the wounded are left between the lines to suffer and die as generals play politics and observe military protocols.Savas Beatie’s Emerging Civil War Series looks at Cold Harbor from May 26 to June 5, covering the advance and main attacks.As with all books in the series, this is both a history and a battlefield guide.This book covers battles that seldom rate more than a few paragraphs in most histories and do not get tours.Haw’s Shop, Totopotomoy Creek and Bethesda Church are not well known.Each has 10 to 12 pages of text, an excellent map and photos of the area.Cold Harbor is about 50 pages of text, three maps and photos covering the major attacks on June 1 & 3.Chapter 11 is a discussion of the military dance... 5/5 James W.

    History Comes Alive

    0 5/5 Christine Pearson "Christine Pearson" (Boston, MA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Hurricane from the Heavens: The Battle of Cold Harbor, May 26 - June 5, 1864 (Emerging Civil War) (Paperback) Another great read from Dan Davis and Phill Greenwalt in the Emerging Civil War Series. The authors take the reader on a detailed trip through the Battle of Cold Harbor once again complete with artist renderings, photos, easy to read maps by Hal Jespersen and a driving tour.There are interesting facts about the thoughts and feelings of Grant and Lee as they sent their armies into the battle and in retrieving the dead and wounded. The generals also had to contend with their orders from Presidents Lincoln and Davis even if they didn’t agree with their strategies. Dan and Phill present “imagine” scenarios including how the men must have felt seeing and hearing their dead and dying fellow soldiers on the battlefield. This excellent book transported me back in time to the Civil War and gave me so much more insight into this terrible period in our nation’s history. A must read for Civil War buffs. Keep writing Dan and Phill! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 9, 2014

    Amish America

    0 5/5 ChickenSoup (Whitestone, NY USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: American Experience Volume 2 (Amazon Instant Video) The episode that I bought was for the Amish one. It was very good. The music was excellent, could have easily been disguised as Hans Zimmer as the composer. It touched upon the history of the Amish, and brought it up to present times, including the tragic Amish school shooting in Lancaster County, PA. It gives a very good view into Amish life, one of the best documentaries about the Amish people. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 24, 2013

Second Amendment Est. 1791 T-shirt

right bear arms, second amendment, 2nd amendment,
The Second Amendment was ratified in 1791, yet lawful American gun owners have come under fire in recent decades as liberals try to take their guns away. Hopefully the Heller Decision on June 26, 2008 will put an end to that. The Right to Bear Arms is paramount to protecting all other rights and freedoms, and it must be forever maintained.

Admiral Andrew Hull Foote Tee Shirt

american, civil, war, union, army, confederate,
Andrew Hull Foote (September 12, 1806 – June 26, 1863) was an admiral in the United States Navy who served during the American Civil War.---------Born at New Haven, Connecticut, the son of US Senator Samuel Augustus Foote (or Foot), Foote first qualified for entry to the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York, and entered their class of 1826. Six months later, deciding that he preferred a seafaring career to one on land, Foote resigned to accept an appointment as a midshipman in the US Navy on December 4, 1822. Between 1822 and 1843, Foote saw service in the Caribbean, Pacific, and Mediterranean, and at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. A reformer, Foote organized a Temperance Society aboard the USS Cumberland, which developed into a movement that resulted in ending the policy of supplying grog to US Naval personnel. During 1849-1851, Foote commanded the USS Perry, cruising the waters off the African coast. He was active in suppressing the slave trade there. This experience persuaded him fully to the cause of Abolition, and in 1854, he published an antislavery tract, Africa and the American Flag. He also became a frequent speaker on the Abolitionist circuit. During 1851-56, Foote served in various shore posts, including on the United States Navy Efficiency Board that was created by Commodore Samuel Francis DuPont. Foote was promoted to Commander in 1856, and took command of the USS Portsmouth in the East India Squadron on November 20–21, 1856. With this command, Foote was assigned the mission of observing British operations against Canton, China during the Opium War, but this resulted in his being attacked from Chinese shore batteries. Foote led a landing party that seized the barrier forts at Canton, China, in reprisal for these attacks. Foote returned to the Continental United States in 1858, and took command of the Brooklyn Navy Yard, in Brooklyn, New York, a post he held until the outbreak of the hostilities of the Civil War. From August 30, 1861, to May 9, 1862, Foote commanded the Mississippi River Squadron with distinction, organizing and leading the gunboat flotilla in the capture of Forts Henry and Donelson and Island No. 10. He received the Thanks of Congress for his actions at these three battles. Wounded in action at Fort Donelson, Foote was promoted to rear admiral on July 16, 1862, and was on his way to take command of the South Atlantic Blockading Squadron for duty outside Charleston, South Carolina, when he died at New York. He was interred at Grove Street Cemetery in New Haven.------------Three ships were named USS Foote for him. Civil War Fort Foote on the Potomac, now a National Park, was also named for him.
