Just looking at history gives you your answer. With fewer men and resources Lee still one most of the battles he fought against Grant. The reason Grant ultimately defeated Lee was that he was a bulldog who wore Lee down. Whenever Grant lost a battle instead of backing off and taking the time to recover and plan his next move Grant just changed direction and kept going forward, which kept the pressure up on Lee. If everything were equal Lee would have won.
