Lewis’s Farm (1865)
 
War:   American Civil War
 
Also known as:   Quaker Road, Military Road, Gravelly Road
 
Date(s):   29 Mar 1865
 
Location:   Dinwiddie County, Virginia, US
 
Outcome:   Union victory
 
Description:   Maj. Gen. G.K. Warren, USA
Maj. Gen. Bushrod R. Johnson, CSA

Warren had a corps; Johnson a division.

Casualties were roughly even, about 380.

On March 29, in the opening moves of Grant’s spring offensive, Sheridan marched with the army’s cavalry followed by the V Corps toward Dinwiddie Court House to turn the right flank of Lee’s Petersburg defenses. The Union V Corps under Maj. Gen. G.K. Warren crossed Rowanty Creek, moved up the Quaker Road toward the Boydton Plank Road intersection, and encountered Johnson's Confederate brigades. A sharp firefight forced the Confederates back to their entrenchments on the White Oak Road.
