This Day in Georgia Civil War History

June 01, 1863

Battle of Cold Harbor; Georgians Captured

At the Battle of Cold Harbor the two armies spent much of this day trying to get into position, then the Union finally launched an attack in the evening. Some 2200 Union casualties was the result, with no advantage gained, although over 700 Georgia soldiers were taken prisoner in the assault. This was but a small taste of what was to come.
