I base my statement on Grants actions after the Battle of the Wilderness.  Which much like Chaneslorville was a strategic drawl, and yet instead of retreating across the river as Hooker did, Grant moved foward.  Maybe Pemberton was a weak commander, but which other Union commander would have taken the risks that Grant did to get to Vicksburg.
