I don't think this is even close.


So you don't think Grant used the advantages in manpower and equipment to wear down his opponents in a war of attrition?

  I would say that is pretty close to what he did everywhere he went. Now I wouldn't say he had "no strategy". His strategy was always pretty sound in my opinion, but that strategy was to use his advantages in manpower and equipment to wear down an opponent. Isn't that what a seige is? Numerical superiority and better artillery and Union gunboats also saved him at Shiloh. To say that what Texas Defender wrote is "not even close" is simply ignoring historical fact.
