Military Rivals Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee Historians John Marszalek and Craig Symonds looked at the military rivalry between Civil War Generals Ulysses S. Grant and Robert E. Lee. They compared Grant and Lee’s childhoods, their experiences at West Point, their actions during the Mexican-American War, and their battles as commanders of Union and Confederate armies.
