Grant is the guy I'd hate to go up against. Despite the best efforts of Halleck to diminish him in Washington circles the guy kept producing victories. Only the intervention of Lincoln saved his career from the backstabbers in Washington. Vicksburg was considered almost impregnable. He saved the Union forces (along with my gg uncle) who were in dire straits at Chattanooga. He goes east and in just over a year bludgeons Lee into surrender. The guy just knew how to fight a war and get it done.
