Emerging Civil War's Chris Mackowski takes a look at the high water along the North Anna River, illustrating why rivers in Virginia posed such logistical challenges for armies.

I think Norrth Anna River, is where the battle of Cold Harbor is?

No the nearest river to Cold Harbor is the Chickahominy. The Confederate right (Anderson) was anchored on the Chickahominy.

The North Anna is where Lee had his inverted V setup to try to get Grant to walk into a trap
