  2. I would pick Ambrose Burnside myself. Fredericksburg was an unmitigated disaster due to his stubborn attempt to launch attack after attack on Lee's dug in troops on Marye's Heights. McClellan was no great leader in battle for sure but at least prepared the Army of the Potomac to fight.

  3. Joe Hooker sure screwed up C'ville though, and of course you can go back to the Bull Run follies. I would still vote for Burnside though.
