This battlefield is most famous for the bloody Federal attack at dawn June 3, 1864. Gen U.S. Grant’s Union army attacked fortified Confederates in a futile assault that morning. A mile-long walking trail winds its way through both the Union and Confederate lines, scene of trench warfare during early June 1864. Site is part of the Richmond National Battlefield Park.
