---Battle of Spotsylvania, Day 10: Very little happens today on the respective armies’ fronts. Grant re-orders his lines, and conceives of a plan to send one corps marching to his left down the railroad to Richmond, and hoping that Lee will take the bait and follow this corps, while Grant follows, in the hopes of catching Lee in a trap. He plans to put this in execution tomorrow.
