Corps?[edit]

The article cites six corps as being attached to Grant's command, but only lists five. Which was the sixth? Or were there only five? Susan Davis 18:50, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

You caught the equivalent of a typo. Please discuss such things in the Talk page prior to plastering big warning signs on the articles themselves. Thanks. Hal Jespersen 21:37, 19 July 2006 (UTC)

Fuller's Thesys[edit]

J. F. C. Fuller ("The Generalship of U.S. Grant" and "Grant and Lee"), if I correctly understood, deffends the objective of Overland Campaign was simply to pin down Lee while Sherman executed a kind of giant turning movement. He strongly denies the intent to wear Lee through attrition. Does that version deserves credibility and should it be represented in the article?M.Campos (talk) 23:48, 6 January 2009 (UTC)

Yes, it does, as this is the mainstream modern view of what Grant was trying to do. He wanted to turn Lee and expected Lee to mistakes that Lee did not make.battrules (talk) 8:40, 20 April 2011 (UCT).
