The Battle of the WildernessAt the battles of the Wilderness and Spotsylvania Court House, Grant would not only struggle against Lee's army, but also against the conservative, sometimes timid, methods of the Union Army of the Potomac. George G. Meade, commander of that army, was a cautious leader - much like the commanders who preceded him. Lee made a career of using Union caution to his advantage.
