I went to the Jackson Michigan Civil War Round Table tonight and the speaker was Jim Epperson who gave The Overland Campaign. Due to time restraints Epperson basically gave us his view of the myths of this battle. I was wondering if the view of the Battle of the Wilderness was going through a re examination? I have read a few books on this subject, but most are now a bit dated. I was wondering if the view of this battle was changing in the past few years. For example it was said the Grant was looking for a battle and was willing to fight Lee almost anywhere except at Mine Run. That Grant was not really trying to slip to the east of Lee, but only trying to by pass the Mill Run area before turning west.
