Battle of Spotsylvania


SKU: cwpr09


The “Bloody Angle” took place at a strategic crossroads that controlled the shortest route to Richmond. General Lee’s Confederate troops built a complex series of trenches and embankments to protect their position. On May 12, 1864, General Grant’s Union troops attacked throughout the rainy, foggy day, and on into utter darkness. Twenty hours of unrelenting vicious combat resulted in one square mile of ground strewn with 12,000 casualties.
