|I'm backtracking here, and possibly have this in the wrong place, and if so, I'm sorry.
Reading the post concerning Petersburg, somebody wrote (I'm too lazy at the moment to find out who) that maybe it isn't that exciting because at that point it was basically over except for waiting for the inevitable. My thought as I read that was that as of July 4, 1863, with the taking of Vicksburg and the Confederate loss at Gettysburg, the outcome was inevitable. Even though there were still battles to come such as the Wilderness and Spotsyvania, is there anybody out there that can paint a scenario that there could possibly be a different outcome to the CW?
