Butler made tentative advances toward Richmond and Petersburg but fell back to his defenses each time. Meanwhile, Confederate Gen. P.G.T. Beauregard scrambled to find enough troops to place in Butler’s path. Scott’s talk will highlight these actions and the lost opportunities of one of the most overlooked campaigns of the war.
