He was talking about how Grant was labeled a butcher by people in the north due to his high casualties. Lee meanwhile sustained heavier casualties but the south accepted it because he gave them victories in fending off the Yankee invaders. Lee and Grant both believed in the offensive meaning there was going to be high casualties. Calling Lee a murderer was said to point out that Grant wasnt a butcher.
