Lee and Grant both believed in the offensive meaning there was going to be high casualties. Calling Lee a murderer was said to point out that Grant wasnt a butcher.
No, that is not it.  Right at the beginning of the movie that is what he called General Lee! A murderer. I didn't watch anymore of it. 

All the writers  I have read about called Grant a butcher but that doesn't matter to Galager.
He shows his biases real slick like.  Matter of fact, I understand Grant himself said he regretted what he did at Cold Harbor.
