      Was Sherman's investigation before or after Grants
      decision to cease prisoner exchanges?

      Did Shermans investigation have any bearing on Grants
      decision to stop the exchange?

      Was the decision based solely upon the souths
      unwillingness to exchanging black soldiers?

      I am here to learn, so the more info you can provide
      will be appreciated.
