victory. Southern Army Surrenders at Vicksburg,
Mississippi (July 4, 1863).

He was a major part of the army, and he was one of the most known generals.
He was one of the best at his job, too. Battle of the Wilderness, Spotsylvania, and Cold Harbor
(May 4 - June 12, 1864).
These were the bloodiest bat-
tles in the Civil War, therefore some of the most casualties occured in these battles. Siege of Petersburg, Virginia (June 9, 1864).
This battle
was nick-
named "the
battle of old
men and
young boys,"
because many of the men were from the infantry and cavalry from either side; some were old while some were very young. William Sherman's end march to sea in Georgia (December 21, 1864). Robert E. Lee surrenders to Ulysses S. Grant at Appomattox, VA
