1864 Civil War Overland Campaign

Here’s Brian Matthew Jordan of Sam Houston University giving a lecture on the 1864 Overland Campaign. You can tell he’s one of David Blight’s students. He’s absorbed Professor Blight’s lecture style.

The video’s description reads, “Sam Houston State University professor Brian Matthew Jordan taught a class about the Civil War’s Overland Campaign, which took place in Virginia in 1864 and pitted Union forces under Ulysses S. Grant against the Confederate Army of Northern Virginia under Robert. E. Lee. The campaign ended with Lee’s army bottled up in Petersburg, just south of the Confederate capital of Richmond. The siege would last more than nine months until Lee was forced to abandon his fortifications, leading to his surrender at Appomattox Courthouse.”
