"And Keep Moving On" is the first book to see the Virginia campaign of spring 1864 as Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee saw it: a single, massive operation stretching hundreds of miles. The story of the campaign is also the story of the demise of two great armies. The scale of casualties and human suffering that the campaign inflicted makes it unique in U.S. history. Mark Grimsley's study, however, is not just another battle book. Grimsley places the campaign in the political context of the 1864 presidential election; appraises the motivation of soldiers; appreciates the impact of the North's sea power advantage; questions conventional interpretations; and examines the interconnections among the major battles, subsidiary offensives, and raids.

Mark Grimsley is a professor of history at Ohio State University. His books include The Collapse of the Confederacy, Civilians in the Path of War (Nebraska 2001) and Gettysburg: A Battlefield Guide (Bison Books 1999).
"This new paperback edition of Mark Grimsley's highly acclaimed study of the Overland campaign of 1864, a volume in the Great Campaigns of the Civil War series, brings to students and teachers of the Civil War a military narrative of uncommon intelligence and lucidity. . . . Grimsley's superb account should help bury the now-tired Lost Cause interpretation of Lee and Grant and their 'duel' and allow us all to keep moving on away from older readings that defined the campaign almost wholly in terms of casualties toward a fuller understanding of the way(s) the campaign presaged the Union's modern strategy of multiple offensives that won the war."-Randall M. Miller, Civil War History -- Randall M. Miller * Civil War History *
