If there was no pressure placed on him then yes it could have been a stalemate. But let's remember that Grant would have had pressure to break Lee's lines and being stalemated would have resulted in his being relieved under that pressure for failing to act. Stalemates seem like they could have only lasted for a few months as long as the Federal general was doing something to try and break the stalemate. I stick by what I said about what actually happened allowing us to figure out what would have happened if everything was even.
