Civil War Trails


Caroline County has 5 sites on the Virginia Civil War Trails tour, all of which are associated with Grant's Overland Campaign, and the Battle of the North Anna River, fought predominately on Caroline soil. In late May of 1864, 200,000 troops clashed as Lee's forces first met Grant's army. Grant had hoped to maneuver around Lee and make a run for the Confederate Capital of Richmond, but Lee diverted him across Caroline County into the heavily fortified banks of the North Anna River.
