AfterwardsWhile Robert E. Lee won the Battle of Reams Station, preventing the Federals from destroying more of the Petersburg (& Weldon) Railroad, and keeping much of his supply line intact, the Confederate victory was one in a series of tactical Southern triumphs that were actually strategic Union victories. General U.S. Grant, with more men and more supplies than General Lee, hit first one side of the Confederate line, then the other. Lee was forced to react, sending his already exhausted men scurrying from left to right with each new Union attack.
