Union Combined Operations in the Civil War

By the spring of 1864, the Union had experienced so much disappointment with combined operations that instead of allaying suspicion between the services, the overriding sense of distrust was at least as prominent as it had been in 1862. Yet that same spring, circumstances conspired to overcome those suspicions during Lieutenant General Ulysses S. Grant's move to the James River. Even with Grant's prestige as the nation's first three-star general since George Washington, it took a perceived crisis in command on the James River to overcome the traditional barriers to unified authority.
