Have we forgotten that Meade was the commander of the AotP? Cold Harbor deserves much more study. May I suggest Fergurson's "Not War but Murder"? Or Rhea's "Cold Harbor"?

"Was it not about this time that Mary Todd Lincoln bestowed on Grant the title “butcher”?" Shucks! The quick reply doesn't give me access to all those nice things. Yes. Mary coined the phrase "butcher." But if one looks at the numbers and percentages, the figures do not ring true.

Grant was, above all, an active general. He had numerical superiority and he used it. "Butcher?" Check the numbers.
