Five Forks a Decisive Victory[edit]

The Battle of Five Forks is a decisive victory for the Union as, said in the introduction paragraphs in the beginning of the article: " Pickett's loss at Five Forks triggered Lee's decision to abandon his entrenchments around Petersburg and begin the retreat that led to his surrender at Appomattox Court House on April 9."--Red Wiki 14:49, 25 November 2009 (UTC)

Map?[edit]

A map might be useful. Valetude (talk) 03:42, 9 April 2014 (UTC)

Task force?[edit]

The article refers to Sheridan's command as a "task force," which is the proper term by current standards. However, I don't think that the term was in use at the time. If not, wouldn't it be better simply to call it V Corp, as that appears to be what it was. JDZeff (talk) 20:28, 3 May 2017 (UTC)
