A General Who Will Fight

Grant's success at Chattanooga led to another promotion, this time to General in Chief of all Union Armies with the responsibility of developing a new strategy to win the war. Ordering simultaneous attacks across the country, Grant himself commanded the campaign against Robert E. Lee's army. The resulting series of battles, while bloody, showed Grant's fully developed leadership ability, including his affinity for maneuver and his unshakable determination.
