The Wilderness was a battle, not a campaign. It was the first battle of the Overland Campaign (May 1864).

Lee had won this battle, but Grant did not retreat. He hung on Lee's flank and eventually crowded him into a corner.

"Despite of" is not a grammatically correct phrase. Perhaps you mean "In spite of" or simply "Despite." "In spite of" is an alternate for "Despite".

Despite is a preposition.
