What was the importance of the Battle of Fort Wilderness?

Either this question is in the wrong category or the use of FORT in the question is wrong. Fort Wilderness was the site of a battle in the Seven Years(French and Indian)War. In the War Between the States the Battle of The Wilderness(May 1864) was the first time that Robert E. Lee and Hiram Ulysses Grant met in battle. It was also significant in that it was the first time (at least in the Eastern Theater) that-after a battle- the two armies didn't separate to"lick their wounds,"or that their movements weren't to retreat. From the time of this battle until both armies settled into the siege of Petersburg,they were either fighting or marching to fight constantly. Grant's familiar"move by the left flank" strategy worked in pushing Lee south and finally depleted the Southern army such that it could no longer fight. Grant brought it to a close at Appomattox Courthouse,Va. on Palm Sunday-April 9, 1865. The final push began at The Battle of the Wilderness.
