Who do you think was a better division commander, A.P. Hill or Patrick Cleburne?
Major General Patrick R. Cleburne
Is there any doubt that General Cleburne was the best divisional commander in the Western Theatre? He was never given individual command, so we shall never know whether he deserved the epithet of “Stonewall of the West,” but it is still interesting to speculate.
Cleburne; his command proficiency did not depend on whether he was suffering from a flair of syphilis symptoms on any given day as the comparative General Did.
I agree. Cleburne was an overall better commander. A. P. Hill had too many issues that dulled his performance at times.
Patrick Cleburne by far!
For the sake of argument, why Cleburne over Little Powell? Examples?
