That particular battle has always sickened me.  Grant's stated regret that he sent in the third wave has made me wonder - should he have fought there at all?  What were the alternatives?

Any thoughts, anyone?

Thanks!

This was when trench warfare took on a whole new meaning and the losses were devastating for both sides.

Some of my decendants owned the local tavern nearby.
