BHR, I think you are exactly right about Grant's strategic vision. I am convinced that the Confederacy collapsed from within because of the external pressure Grant was able to bring against it during the 1864 campaigns. He was the only General in Chief that was able to bring the full might of the United States armies against the Confederacy at the same time. That was what finally convinced the Confederate public that they could not win the war. Once the public lost faith, the Confederate Army could not continue to resist for long.

Regards,
Mark
