Union Combined Operations in the Civil War

With the exception of Richmond, no city in the Confederacy was the object of more Federal interest and effort than Charleston, South Carolina, where the first shots of the war had been fired, and which was in the minds of many Northerners the very heart and soul of the rebellion. And yet the Union campaign against Charleston, like the thrust up the James River to Drewry's Bluff, foundered on the shoals of poor interservice relations. Despite opportunities, the failure of Union army and navy leaders to cooperate in a genuine combined campaign resulted in frustration, disappointment, and failure.
