thats the key Jojo, it's not just Lee that Grant would be facing, he'd be facing arguably the most successful pair of generals in history. Most likely with grant still alive lee would not have taken the defensive, not with the two armies being so closely matched. I'm don't know of anyother major defensive battle Grant fought other than Shiloh, which he nearly lost on the 1st day.

I appreciate everyone's comments, to me this battle would be the equivalent of watching Ty Cobb and Derek Jeter go head to head in baseball. Something we all have our opinions on but will never know
