Peacock provides readers with a biographical account of the actions of Bryan Grimes during the Civil War. Grimes, the heroic colonel of the 4th NC Regiment State Troops and later a general, was from Pitt County and served the four war years. During the conflict he had seven horses shot out from under him.
Peacock discusses the Union campaign led by General Ambrose Burnside to capture Roanoke Island, its place in the grand strategy to capture the Confederate capital at Richmond, and why this battle may have been the critical one in determining the war's outcome.
