Abstract:

"June 1864: the Civil War is now into its fourth year of bloody conflict with no end in sight. The armies of the North are stalled in fetid trenches outside of Richmond and Atlanta, and the reelection of Abraham Lincoln to a second term seems doomed to defeat. Only one group of volunteers for the Union cause is still eager for battle: the USCTs, the United States Colored Troops. General Ambrose Burnside has an ingenious plan to break Fort Pegram, the closest point on the Confederate line taht is the last defense of Richmond, by tunneling forward from the Union position beneath the fort to explode its defenses. Burnside needs the USCTs for one desperate rush that just might bring victory"--Page 4 of cover.
