why was general grant better able than general lee to withstand tremendous losses?
I'll be glad to comment on your answer.
i was thinking that grant was more able than lee because he didn't take as many risks. lee tried to fight off the union by going to their front line and well they failed miserably because almost every one died but from the start grant was thinking on how to end the war. he was going (and did) blockaid the southerners. he cut them off from the rest of the world they had to scour previous battles for unused bullets and guns and their food supply was low and in 1865 there was even a famine the wealthy even went to bed hungry. but i don't know if all this answers the question...
Wasn't the Union army much larger than the Confederate army?
