C is for Cold Harbor Battle. This battle was fought in June 3, 1864. 7,000 men were killed or wounded in only a few minutes. It was thought as the bloodiest and most lop sided battle. Grant said obout the battle was "I have always regretted that the last assault at Cold Harbor was ever made. I might say the same thing of the assault of the 22d of May, 1863, at Vicksburg. At Cold Harbor no advantage whatever was gained to compensate for the heavy loss we sustained." That is what happened at the battle of Cold Harbor.
