Grant, who had whipped the western Confederate armies, was brought east to whip Lee. Join us in this episode as we examine the fierce fighting at the Battles of the Wilderness, Spotsylvania, and Cold Harbor, and see who triumphed in one of the greatest rivalries in military history – Grant vs. Lee.
