Kautz's Effort Stopped Here
— Lee vs. Grant - The 1864 Campaign —In May 1864, Gen. Ulysses S. Grant launched attacks on Confederate armies across the South. He accompanied Gen. George G. Meade's Army of the Potomac as it fought Gen. Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia from the Wilderness to Cold Harbor. With most of both armies still north of the James River, the Federals made their first attempt to capture Confederate-held Petersburg. That effort was stopped here.
