The Bermuda Hundred CampaignWhen the Bermuda Hundred Campaign began, Confederate forces south of the James River were widely scattered across southern Virginia and eastern North Carolina. Confederate eyes were focused on events to the north where the Battle of the Wilderness was unfolding. When the Army of the James landed at Bermuda Hundred on May 5, 1864, there were scarcely 6,000 troops defending Richmond and Petersburg. While Robert E. Lee and the Army of Northern Virginia battled Grant and the Army of the Potomac in the Wilderness, Confederate generals Pierre Gustave Toutant Beauregard and George Pickett scrambled to find troops to place in Butler path.
