Begins with a biographical comparison of Grant and Lee and then chronicles the extraordinary series of battles that pitted the two generals against each other. With Grant and Lee finally deadlocked at Petersburg, we visit the ghastly hospitals, and follow Sherman's Atlanta campaign through the mountains of north Georgia. As the horrendous casualty lists increase, Lincoln's chances for re-election begin to dim and, with them, the possibility of a Union victory.
