Start time 0720 The first action of the Overland Campaign took place on May 5, 1864, in the tangled thickets of "The Wilderness" a second-growth forest west of Fredericksburg, Virginia. The Battle of Chancellorsville had been fought on the very same ground, one year earlier, and had resulted in the defeat of the Army of the Potomac. The Confederate Army of Northern Virginia is still commanded by the legendary Robert E Lee, and the Army of the Potomac is nominally commanded by the victor of Gettysburg, Maj Gen George Meade, but accompanying that army is the new commander of all the Union armies, Lt Gen U S Grant. The map is a stand-alone product, not derived from the campaign master map. (Overland 1 pdt= 20min/1000men/full firepower.) All cdrs included. The featured OOB contains more capable Union Regiments.
