On April 2, 1865, General Robert E. Lee issued a suicide order to the Confederate garrison at Fort Gregg to hold at all hazards. Could these 334 Confederates last long enough against a tidal wave of 4,400 Union soldiers to give Lee time to escape from Petersburg, Virginia with the rest of his army? The Battle of Fort Gregg had a strategic impact on the end of the Civil War in Virginia, yet The Confederate Alamo is the first book-length study ever written on the fight. This dramatic story details the bravery and heroism exhibited by the soldiers from both sides who fought each other across the forts muddy parapet. Fourteen Union soldiers later received the Medal of Honor for their efforts in the fight.
