Summary
This program begins with a biographical comparison of Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee and then goes on to chart the extraordinary series of battles that pitted the two generals against each other. So intense was the fighting that in one 30-day period, their armies lost more men than both sides had lost in three years of war. With Grant and Lee finally deadlocked at Petersburg, this episode shifts focus to follow General Sherman's Atlanta campaign. As the horrendous casualty lists increased, Lincoln's chances for reelection began to dim-and with them the possibility of Union victory.
