Topic: “The Battle of Rappahannock Station: A Most Brilliant and Successful Affair.”
Discover a small November 7, 1863 engagement—from the forgotten period in the eastern theater between Gettysburg and Grant—with large implications. After losing his bridgehead over the Rappahannock River in the “saddest chapter in the history of this army,” Lee will never again recapture the initiative to recross that river and assume the strategic offensive.
