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

    Cutting mat

    0 4/5 teacherlady (Los Alamos, NM USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: June Tailor 26-Inch-by-39-Inch Gridded with 23-Inch-by-35-Inch GridRotary Mat With Handle (Misc.) This mat is great for cutting. It's only one sided, but it's priced right (at least it was when I bought it!). The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that the inches on the sides go up in one direction on one side and down in the other direction on the other side. For instance 7 on the left long side is 28 on the right long side. If you have fabric covering most of the board, you must count the inches to make sure you have a straight line. I got out my permanent marker and renumbered the board. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , December 1, 2014

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.
