Mark Grimsley places the campaign in the political context of the 1864 presidential election; appraises the motivation of soldiers; appreciates the impact of the North's sea power advantage; questions conventional interpretations; and examines the interconnections among the major battles, subsidiary offensives, and raids. In an especially powerful chapter he discusses the extent and causes of the physical misery sustained in what one soldier called "the hardest campaign" and draws out the campaign's importance as a touchstone of the "Lost Cause" mythology."--Jacket."@en ;
