March 25, 1865 Battle of Fort Stedman to Battle of Jones FarmBy March 1865 Confederate General Robert E. Lee had suffered through nearly nine months of fighting, had repulsed seven Union offensives, and had his men spread along a 37-mile-long front. Knowing that it was only a matter of time before his lines would break he took a desperate gamble and launched his only offensive of the siege.
