Grant's critics in the North and just about everyone south of the Mason-Dixon line in 1862 thought of him as a butcher. Yet Lee who's army suffered heavier casualties throughout the war is a Saint to the south and some in the north. Some historians accuse Grant of being a butcher while glorifying Lee in godlike status. Just nice to see one point out that if Grant was a butcher/murderer then so was Lee.
