Gen. Grant's inosi vnlnorablo point ns
a General, so far as I liavt 1kh nhin (.
gather from lus tipjionents, is his enin
liaign in Virginia. First, in lakinir the
ovcriand line of operations ; and f-erowl,
in liis niotle of warfare. On lite iiit
ljoint, opinion niiirlir well h 11 VO I n w.li .1 i.
vhled hud the question boon new one
hut it was not. Gen. McC'lelian'o move
ment had lesulted in diist)
ami hatl cost tho country an enormous
lews in life and treasure. "Whether this
was due lo him, or to the Government,
the fact of tho failure was not very
reassuiiii";. Iiowevertrnoil tl
doingso, ub to lead thu Government lo
icpeat (he experiment. Grant, on his
part, iouiid himself snddenlv
from lii.a bticecssful Held ofltihoiy in tho
vesl (o take commniul rtf nu .mmt
which, from whatever cniiMMi. hmi ('n,i.
ed and, in too many eaten, mihcral.ly
failed in ail its agyrehsivo movements,
l ie fortunately found (lie army in jjood
discipline, well-apj oinicd, witli eompe
ments in the Pennsylvania campaign.
Jlis enemy was in front of him, wilhin
Htrikin.;; dislancc ; (lie country had be
come impatient at the fruitlessnetis even
of its successes, and demanded vigorous
action, at whatever risk or co.it of life
and treasure; moreover, mo autliorilics
nt Washington were not yet nrentued to
see the front of Ihc Capitol again denud
ed ol troops.
Grant himself was not a man (o pl.iy
at fence with Lee. Jlis nature led him,
whether it he a virtue or u fault, to fasten
on his enemy, and never to relax his
hold until he had brought him to the
ground; and his previous successes had
only confirmed the instinct of his na
ture. All of (he:-:e fully justify, in my opin
ion, tho determination that lie came to ;
and, considering the very mixed nature
of all military problem.-, even wiien not
complicated by political consideralions,
J do not doubt that such will he tho
judgment passed upon this event by im
partial military criticism.
The movement once initialed in that
direction, there was nothing else to be
done ; but. a-i Grant qainlly put it, " to
light it out on that lino if it took all
summer ;" anil to (his task Grant ad
diessed himself with his accustomed
coolness and icitinacity; and here
comes in Ihejield of mote poshive criti
cism thoio unfavorable to him deny
ing both his strategctical and tactical
combinations in his subsequent move
ment. Considering Iho country to bo gone
over, there were but two cotnscs open to
Grant either to reach Richmond by
masking nnd turning, in succession, (lie
many strong defensible positions all'ord
ed by nature (o Lee, or to attack Lee
wherever lie found him, and if lie failed
in drawing him lrom his positions, ami
of the consequent advantages of pur.-uit
at the hcolfl of a demoralized army, than
to resort to the les., bloody but less
advantageous method, in results, of turn
ing. The battle of (he Wilderness, 1 Hip
pose it ivill be conceded, was unavoida
ble. After tho.-o bloody days, there was
indeed enough to "give pause." Where
but few Generals would have ventured,
Grant did not hesitate to advance. Plu
cher, tiio famous "Old Marshal For
wards," fell back from tho staygerii g
blows inilicted by Napoleon ; not so
C rant our Marshal Forwards, he only
pres'-ei' on the more vigorously. Find
ing hiimelf again and again in front of ,
hio enemy strongly iuiienchod, lure
were occasions in which his adverse
critics invoke the military maxim of
not attacking your enemy in an en
trenched position when you can force
him from it by turning it. Like all pro
fessional maxims, excellent when plain
ly applicable, violated by Frederick,
Napoleon, ami every great captain when
controlling circumslaucas culled for it.
Who that has read military 1 i lory does
not know this ? Witli a line army, well
olllcered, still fresh and superior to it
opponont, Grant was justilied, If ever,
in seizing tho bull by Ihohorns. There
could bo no great battle without grap
pling with Lee, and no great results ex
cept by never relaxing his grasp, until
