Although City Point, Va was probably not the most important factor in the North’s victory, it certainly deserves attention in any study of the Civil War. I think it can be argued that when General of the Army Grant set up headquarters at City Point a year before the end of the war, the remainder of the war for the South was an exercise in futility. It was a huge supply depot for the North. There is an old residential building with a video. But, visiting still requires a little imagination of what it was like in 1864.
