Throughout May 1864 the AOP under Grant had slugged it out with Lee and the ANV during the Overland Campaign. Stalled along the North Anna River, Grant decided to turn Lee’s right flank and head for the Pamunkey River. Lee countered and as May faded into June, the two armies clashed at Haw’s Shop, Totopotomoy Creek, Bethesda Church and Matadequin Creek, all the while on a collision course for a dusty road junction east of Richmond. Join the American Battlefield Trust’s Education Manager, Dan Davis for a discussion of these pivotal days of the Overland Campaign and learn about a unique opportunity to preserve hallowed ground at Cold Harbor.
