Indy, I was saying Ft. Stedman and Mule Shoe were not huge battles, not that they were decisive.  I also already addressed Pickett's Charge, and I admit that it was entirely Lee's fault, and do not blame Longstreet in the least.  I said that Cold Harbor was the only doomed assault worse that Pickett's Charge earlier.  Lee was not a perfect general, but who was?  Just because I said Lee was a superior commander than Grant doesn't mean Lee is flawless.  And, if you'll recall, Lee had a lot more man power when he was against some of the other unsuccessful Yankee generals.  He never recovered from Gettysburg, a blow that was not delivered by Grant.  Sorry you did not understand my post, but maybe you should've read the whole argument before attempting to discredit me.
