    Nope, there is only one sentence even more accurate and undeniable:

    Slug loves Taco Bell.



    There needs to be a word stronger than "love" in there.

          IKE was a brillant supply chain general who was able to handle monty, patton and churchhill and still defeat the german.
          Grant was general that had to go head-to-head against the south and would keep stabbing away to keep the south off guard.

          in summary, ike had an organization that was more supportive whereas Grant had to maintain pressure on the north to keep slugging it out, even though Grant had his personal problems.

          my opinion is that Grant edged out Ike as the general who punished the foe in such a manner that once Lee surrendered, the other southern generals soon realized and followed suit.

          All that to say, I vote for Grant.

            Since Lee was the South's most successful general, he had become the symbol of The South--once he surrendered, everyone else knew the game was up. I beleive it's the only time in history when the first army to surrender meant that the rest of thsat side's fighters knew the game was up and then surrendered once they got the news.
            anyone who forced Lee to surrender in 1865 would have been "the man", but Grant is the one who did it, so he gets full points.

                Ike could organize an army, but he wasn't much of a strategist.
