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.

26 Feet to the Charlottes, Exploring the Land of the Haida

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.

This review is from: Hurricane from the Heavens: The Battle of Cold Harbor, May 26 - June 5, 1864 (Emerging Civil War Series) (Kindle Edition) This a well researched, but poorly proofed book. This is a shame. The authors clearly are devoted to the material, but the poor editing provides a constant irritation to anyone who loves the English language. Unless you are considering the book for its driving tour information, I suggest you look elsewhere for enjoyable reading on the Overland Campaign. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 15, 2014

    A fine continuation of a top-notch history

    I suppose that the most fitting summation of the merits of Gordon Rhea's "Cold Harbor" that I can give would be to simply state that it fully meets the standards established by its predecessors. Rhea has already published three outstanding volumes about the 1864 Overland Campaign waged between Grant and Lee. The present volume wholly lives up to the promise of those earlier books. Despite the complexity of the events described, Rhea's narrative is clear and compelling, and I have gained an understanding of the what's and why's of the Cold Harbor battle that far surpasses anything before.Rhea challenges several popular misconceptions about the battle, especially regarding the famous, ill-fated grand attack of June 3rd. Although in recent years understanding has grown amongst specialist military historians that the image of a hugely costly and essentially unprecedented sacrifice of attacking troops was much more a product of myth rather than fact (Rhea concludes that Pickett's... 5/5 Bruce Trinque (Amston, CT United States) - See all my reviews, August 24, 2002

    Cold Harbor as campaign history...

    Most contemporary histories of the Civil War cover the 1864 Overland Campaign as a series of maneuvers from the Rapidan river ultimately to Appomattox with emphasis on the major battles fought at the Wilderness, Spotsylvania, North Anna River, Cold Harbor and the siege at Petersburg. Little is publicized concerning the planning and marches to and from these prestigous battlefields, until Gordon Rhea's study of this series of battles. In Cold Harbor, Rhea's latest in this series, he comes clean with the details of the maneuvers from the North Anna river to Cold Harbor and the ensuing battles on June 1st and 3rd, 1864. By providing such a complete and comprehensive campaign history, Rhea sacrifices (in my opinion) some of his previous improvements in "readability" and essentially redefines what a "campaign history" reads like.Even though this period does encompass a significant amount of maneuvering, cavalry battles, small infantry engagements and... 4/5 Thomas Moody - See all my reviews, June 25, 2003

    Science projects falling from the sky?

    By April, most of the children in my kindergarten knew that they had learned absolutely everything about David Wiesner's "Tuesday". I surprised them one Tuesday, with this book, and let them know it was by the same author. "Will there be frogs?" the children clamored. We shared the book, and with growing excitement some of the children exclaimed as we turned the page and I read the date, "That's your birthday! Did Mr. David, the author know that? Did he put it there 'cuz he knows you love frogs and his Tuesday book?"I must confess, I do not know how the author chose that date to evaluate plants. This book was a hit in my classroom, a treasured favorite, even though it was a bit beyond K level scientific data collections. We planted seeds, and of course, the children adored the ending, which i shall not give away. We did many extension activities such as veggie trays and a big salad day.

    Artichokes Advance on Anchorage.....

    It all started in Ho-Ho-Kus, New Jersey on May 11, 1999. Holly Evans launched her science experiment, flats of vegetable seedlings carried up into the ionosphere by weather balloons, to study "the effects of extra-terrestrial conditions on vegetable growth and development." Fast forward to June 29. All over the country, enormous vegetables are seen floating to earth. "Cucumbers circle Kalamazoo. Lima bearns loom over Levittown. Artichokes advance on Anchorage. Parsnips pass by Providence. And broccoli lands with a big bounce in Holly Evans's backyard." But when "arugula covers Ashtabula" , Holly begins to wonder about this veggie phenomenon. Arugula was not a part of her experiment..... David Wiesner's makes June 29th an unforgettable day in his entertaining classic, and imaginations will soar with each delightful page turn.
