My thoughts remain the same, Mark. Grant was willing to fight a war of attrition. I know attrition is supposed to be loss of men and material, but I'd also say wearing down the opposing for to the point where they might not be able to continue fighting would count as well. How often did Grant stop to let his army lick it's wounds and recover, giving those who he faced time to do the same? That seems more common in the Eastern Theater prior to 1864.
