The Battle of the Wilderness was the first battle in the Overland Campaign, which started in May 1864 and ended with the surrender of Lee at Appomattox in April 1865.

It was a Union defeat, largely because Lee forced Grant to fight in thick forest, where his superior artillery could not be deployed.

Poor wretches, suffocated by the burning undergrowth, and unable to use their field-guns in dense forest. Yet their morale was not shaken. When Grant ordered them to continue advancing, they set up a big cheer. Incidentally, the Wilderness was a battle, not a campaign. The campaign was the Overland Campaign, a bad mixture of failed assaults and long, soul-destroying months of siege. The only cheerful aspect was the general war situation, tilting in favour of the Union. Grant had ended the system of prisoner-exchange, so the Confederates were doomed to run out of manpower. And Lee was pinned down in a war of attrition that he could never win.
