So you weren't annoyed and distracted by all the fadeouts? There were so many of them, it's like they were trying to be funny! I usually don't notice stuff like that, so when I do notice it, there's a problem. I shouldn't be consciously aware of fade-outs, it's like when the music is so bad that you notice it.
It would be worse without the fade-outs. They're trying to show it's a big film with pretty disparate parts: human drama, battlefield action, political infighting, crowd scenes &c. The fades to black allow them to cram all that in without becoming a jarring jumble.

Jared Harris from Mad Men looked pretty bad-ass as General Grant.
