Grant was rattled at the Wilderness.  General Lee got under his skin bad and beat him even though he had a 3-1 man advantage.  That ain't too smart and it was worse when he backed off.  So that would make General Lee a genius!

Grant didn't beat General lee until he had a 5-1 man advantage and still didn't beat that little army.  General Lee saw it was futile to continue against those odds and did the right thing by giving up.

Any general could have done the same thing as Grant.
