Cold Harbor Battlefield Park Walking TrailThe grim drama at Cold Harbor cost some 13,000 Federals and nearly 5,0000 Confederates killed, wounded, or captured. Southern morale soared after the battle, while Grant's men were embittered by the lopsided defeat. One Union officer wrote that it was "a murderous engagement" because "we were recklessly ordered to assault the enemy's entrenchments."
