Grant took the offensive, and if his forces would often suffer tactical defeat at the hands of Lee's lethally agile Confederates, his relentless movement to flank Lee out of position kept the two armies in deadly contact, suffering casualties the Confederates could not sustain, while bringing the war closer to Richmond.

This guidebook provides notes for dozens of historical markers along the route of the fighting, with photographs, maps, and diagrams of the various battlefields, and short synopses of the action at each. Three historians contributed to the narrative, which is fascinating, evenhanded in its treatment of the two armies, and highly readable. Highly recommended to those wishing to retrace the steps of the two armies.
