      I believe you are mistaken.  Grant had a great deal to do with it.

       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?

      You are confused.  The cartel was suspended in July, 1863, by
      order of Secretary of War Stanton.  Grant had nothing to do with
      it.
