We’ll start the program Friday evening at 8PM in the first floor conference room at the Hampton Inn with two lectures highlighting various aspects of the Overland campaign. Robert K. Krick will discuss the Army of Northern Virginia’s role in the campaign while Dr. Mark Snell will provide perspective on the Army of the Potomac.
On Saturday we’ll follow the dean of Civil War guides Ed Bearss as he takes you to the battlefields of Ben Butler’s Bermuda Hundred Campaign. We’ll cover the May battles of Port Walthall Junction, Chester Station, Proctor’s Creek, Ware Bottom Church and the Battle of Drewry’s Bluff. Lunch at the Golden Corral buffet restaurant in Colonial Heights.
Sunday morning, with Ed Bearss, we’ll start with the Battle of North Anna and then cover Yellow Tavern. Our stop at North Anna will feature a walking tour where we’ll see the remains of Lee’s entrenchments – an interesting element of the battle. We’ll devote the afternoon to the Battle of Cold Harbor. We’ll cover the entire seven mile front from Bethesda Church down to the Second Corps sector on the Old Cold Harbor Road. Lunch will be at the Golden Corral buffet restaurant in Glen Allen.
