Seeking to exploit the exposed salient in the Confederate lines during the Battle of Spotsylvania Courthouse, Grant repeatedly threw Hancock's corps at the threatened Confederate defenses. Though a breach was briefly achieved, the nearly 22 hours of assaults were ultimately repulsed. Cannan's study of this episode is part of the Battleground America series that combines concise narrative, modern-day photographs, and detailed maps.
