The Bermuda Hundred CampaignLt. Gen. Grant's strategy was to attack the Confederate armies on multiple fronts simultaneously so that they could not reinforce each other. In the early days of May 1864, Maj. Gen. George G. Meade moved the Army of the Potomac across the Rapidan River and was struck by Lee and the Army of Northern Virginia at the Wilderness. After suffering heavy casualties, Grant ordered the army on to Spotsylvania Courthouse where more heavy ﬁghting occurred. Grant then ordered a movement to the left toward the North Anna River. There, a sick Lee was unable to capitalize on a mistaken deployment of Union forces and Grant escaped a decisive battle. Grant once again made another movement to the left which led to his ill-fated attacks at Cold Harbor.
