This chapter examines the impending defeat of the Confederate army during the period from April to September 1864. Though the Confederacy had enjoyed a handful of convincing victories during the preceding six months, it had also been handed several embarrassing defeats. The Confederate soldiers who had fought so hard to maintain some level of control in the Central Appalachian Divide were already stumbling. In addition, while Federal forces had eaten well and received all the weapons and ammunition they could use in the coming campaigns, the situation among the starving and nearly naked Confederates had changed but little.
