i agree 100% hellcat, Grant was the best general the union had because of his tactics of never backing off, he understood what other federal generals either didnt understand or was too timid to risk. Lee was the best general for the south because he understood that his number of troops was his weakness, Grant, IMO was the biggest turning point in the war because given time Lee probably would have gained enough strength to invade the north which was the only way the south could have hoped to win the war, invade the north, defeat the federal army and threaten the big cities. Grant not allowing Lee the opportunity to regain his strength stole the only hope of victory the south still had other then lincoln losing election.
