Just because an army has superior manpower numbers and equipment doesn't mean its a slam dunk. Grant still had to lead it into combat and make good decisions in the heat of battle. He was marching in hostile territory and was the one going on the offensive against Lee. Lee had pummeled every Union commander that had gone on the offensive against him before Grant. Grant was fighting in the minds of his soldiers against those defeats also. I have to go with the guy that got it done in the end. He was the best in the results area. That is what it all comes down to...results.
