VALLEY OF THE SHADOW OF DEATH--1864
Episode Six begins with a biographical comparison of Grant and Lee and then
chronicles the extraordinary series of battles that pitted the two generals
against each other from the Wilderness to Petersburg in Virginia. In 30
days, the two armies lose more men than both sides have lost in three years
of war. With Grant and Lee finally deadlocked at Petersburg, we visit the
gastly hospitals North and South, and follow Sherman's Atlanta campaign
through the mountains of north Georgia. As the horrendous casualty lists
increase, Lincoln's chances for re-election begin to dim, and with them the
possibility of Union victory.
