It is one of the most iconic battles of the Civil War. General Robert E. Lee and his outnumbered Army of Northern Virginia, outmaneuvered and outfought their perennial foe, the Union Army of the Potomac in the dense "Wilderness" of Spotsylvania County, Virginia. By the end of the battle, the names of some 30,000 men lined the casualty lists and one of Lee's most trusted subordinates lay dying at Guinea Station.
