You and I see a different Lee's army in 1864 for it was hurting.

Lee's army had a punch left in it until he used it up at the Wilderness from then on the punch was gone. Lee fought off his back foot for the rest of the war.

Jerusalem Plank Road was nice victory but all it did was turn the union left but at the end of the day the position of the two armies had not change much, nothing achieved.

The point I was making is that Lee's army was becoming unable to preform daring or audacious moves by 1864 because it was becoming a shadow of it once glorious self.
