I've come to the conclusion that besides a couple of small time battles along the Cumberland against subpar leadership and accepting the surrender of Lee, Grant was an unimpressive tactical general. Many times he simply used his superior numbers until the rebels had to back out or give up due to attrition. Vicksburg and The Wilderness are a couple of examples. Even when Lee surrendered at Appomattox, he was simply overwhelmed after accidentally running into the entire Army of the Potomac on their way to North Carolina. Outside of his tenacity, I'm not impressed with his performance. I do realize I am but an infant in my quest for Civil War knowledge, but if I am wrong, I'd like to hear examples of his tactics winning battles onstead of just having superior numbers.
