1864 – (Civil War) Eighth day at Cold Harbor, Virginia

From May 31- June 12, 1864, more than 160,000 men clashed at Cold Harbor, Virginia, during the Wilderness Campaign. The 2nd, 5th, 6th, 7th and 36th Wisconsin Infantry regiments took part. On June 8, both sides stopped fighting long enough to bury the dead, which were rotting in the heat of the Virginia summer. The 36th Infantry interred 400 bodies in front of their trenches.
