The Other Grant

Lewis A. Grant and the Vermont Brigade in the Battle of the Wilderness

(p.201) The Other Grant
The Wilderness Campaign

Carol Reardon

University of North Carolina Press

This chapter focuses on how Lewis A. Grant and the Vermont Brigade's contributions to the Wilderness campaign went relatively unnoticed within the army and among Vermonters back home. Grant's soldiers suffered 10 percent of the army's casualties in the Wilderness but saw their accomplishments and sacrifice obscured by a chorus of praise for Winfield Scott Hancock's Second Corps. The chapter reconstructs the superior performance of Grant's men and analyzes the response to that performance within the army and behind the lines.
