Book Talk with Bradley M. Gottfried
August 10 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Follow the actions of both armies through the completion of the Overland Campaign. After the Wilderness fighting, the Army of the Potomac attempted to swing around the right flank of Gen. Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia and shoot straight for Richmond–a move intended to force Lee out into the open, where the larger and well-stocked Union army could destroy it. Join author Bradley Gottfried to discover The Maps of Spotsylvania through Cold Harbor.
