I would argue that Lee didn't control the strategy, since he was the one always rushing around trying to block Grant's next maneuver. Unless, of course, you want to consider that to be a strategy. Seems to me it's more a case of Grant forcing Lee's hand.
Masterful, Clewell! (Can't bring myself to address you as Pvt.) Simply masterful!

Grant at Cold Harbor was much like Lee at Malvern Hill or Day 3: The potential payoff was worth the risk. Sometimes the magic works ........
