Appomattox by Xanadu7 Appomattox by Xanadu7
The advantage of being nondescript/unmemorable/forgettable is that Lee can't predict your strategy :P Usually Lee is all like, "Oh, hey, Burnside, that guy's an idiot, he'll do blah blah..." With Grant, he's like "Oh yes, Grant, he's like... um... uhh... Oh damn."

The second advantage was not having the congressman who referred you to West Point remembering your name, so you get the cool initials U.S. Uncle Sam! Unconditional Surrender! A hell of a lot better than being called Useless!

I like that you also depict the fact, that Lee took on his last good uniform (propably saving it for that very moment) while Grant was wearing the same uniform he had worn all day.

Ok, what else would you expect from a man, who had been compared to King Arthur?
