While you DO get the full Robert E Lee here, this American Experience of Grant is just a truncated version of the full one they did years ago. The best thing to do would to be to buy Robert E Lee & the entire nearly 4-hour Grant separately

A Good set.......... both do a good job outlining both men's paths. Also important, I felt, is how their peers viewed them. Worth the time and cost !

Grant was simply one of the all time great General Officers. Robert E. Lee was tied to napoleonic warfare. Namely heavy artillary and the maneuvering of his army. The South taking Lee as a genuine military genius kind of wears it out. No blow by blow accounts here. Suffice to say Robert E. Lee had a reputation. Namely Number one graduate all time to then from west point. Comandant of West Point, also a brilliant officer in the Mexican War which was commited under the name of "manifest destiny" under James Polk. A simple war of aggression in which we took about half of Mexico. Pressed by the south to have more land because slaves are uneducated and farming keeps slavery alive. In any case the south seemed to know more about Grant than the U.S. did. Grant was the first General to cooprdinate his armies to an end. Lee did not. When Grant took command of all U.S. armies the end was ordained. Grant and Sherman got the confederacy in a pincer action when Sherman cut the south in half with command of the south's supply line, the Missippi river with Grant's taking of Vicksburg. In the end at appomattox junction General Lee standing 6'4" in full dress uniform came to surrender, he thought he may face a firing squad is to be considered valor. When Grant got the message he was over an hour away in the field and arrived in a mud splattered uniform that looked like a regular soldier except for the stars on his shoulders, standing about 5'9". So different were these two soldiers. After banter about the mexican war Lee asked for terms of ending the war. Grant said lay down your arms and go home. Every man who owns a horse can take it home. Every officer can have side arms. That was it. When Lee left, they say Grant went out and saluted him. Grant's war methods became text book for the U.S. Army.
