Good quiz...enjoyed although not everyone on here was a general

McClellan was neither the first commander of the Union Army (Winfield Scott) or the Army of the Potomac (Irvin McDowell), if you meant that. Otherwise, nice quiz. They were all generals at one point or another, or at least breveted during the war.

Good quiz, but where are Beauregard, Jubal Early, Nathan Bedford Forrest, Phil Sheridan, George Thomas? All pretty significant commanders, and at least as famous as Meigs or Hill, etc.

Agree with Desroko about McClellan. And, personally, I think the clues should mention battles or exploits that occurred during the war. P.G.T. Beauregard and Joe Johnston both commanded the Army of Northern Virginia. Beauregard also commanded the 1st Corps of the Army of Northern Virginia.

Also, Calvary is where Jesus was supposedly crucified. Cavalry refers to mounted troops. And to my knowledge, Stuart was the sole cavalry commander

Overall good quiz. To hasdrubal Stuart is the best known calvary commander for the south but he was not the only one, Fitzhugh Lee was a calvary commander as was Wade Hampton.

@hasdrubal Jesus WAS crucified at Calvary, regardless of whether you believe He was divine or not. It is historical fact. And yes, people don't know how to spell cavalry correctly.

McClellan wasn't the first commander of the Union Army (by that I assume you mean commander in chief) or the Army of the Potomac. Also, when he was fighting during the Battle of Gettysburg, Chamberlain was only a colonel and was not promoted to general until much later. So, the clue describes something he did when he wasn't yet the rank said in the title of this quiz.
