I agree with some of what you said ole.  I disagree that Lee beat him in "most" battles.  The Wilderness was really a Grant victory...Lee did not hold the field.  Grant marched South after that. Continued his advance.  I am VERY suspect as to the  (Confederate) numbers killed there...I betcha it was bout even.  Close but we do not know for sure.  Cold Harbor...Lee victory I reckon but, again, Grant not driven. NO Lee victories after Cold Harbor.  Actually I would argue there were no real "definitive" Lee victories after Gettsyburg. An eternal debate!  Makes it all fun and interesting.  Carry on.
