|Hellcat, that is a interesting question. I think Grant would have done some of the same things. He is kind of like Stonewall Jackson in that if it had not been for the war these men would have probably lived in obscurity. Except for those studing the war with Mexico. Having said that, I think the Grant we see at the first two years of the war, would be the Grant we would see fighting for the south. Grant during the overland campaign had numerous men and resources, for the south he is not going to have them. And I am not faulting him for using them any general with good sense would. But that brings up another question. What would Lee have done if he had had all them men and resources?
