Brett, i still think it was a battle of attrition. Grant hammered away at Lee's army and when the numbers turned against him, he moved. Yes he was looking for open ground to fight Lee. Grants superior numbers would be more effective in open ground. Wasn't the infux into Lee's army militia from the ...

His hypothesis is that the South did an excellent job numbers-wise of recovering from the 1863 disasters by the time the spring campaigns started. They also did a good job maintaining strength in their armie...

John's email asking me the name and title tipped me off to this thread. I had almost forgotten I hadn't yet purchased this one, but I've done so now and I'm looking over the game as we speak.

Definitely tedious, but once I knew I could find specific Confederate regimental strengths for the Siege of Petersburg on many dates I knew I wanted to get all of the rolls of NARA Microfilm 935 covering ...
