I’m sure I’m not the only person who got the Civil War Sesquicentennial tumbler set for Christmas. The set contains glasses with four Confederates (Davis, Lee, Jackson, and Stuart) and four Federals (Lincoln, Grant, Sherman, and McClellan).
The Confederate line-up didn’t surprise me (nor was I surprised by the absence of Longstreet from the final cut). However, the Federal line-up did surprise me. Specifically, I thought McClellan was an odd choice. I didn’t know there was a large calling of people clamoring for George B. McClellan swag.
I started wondering: If not McClellan, then who would be good as the fourth Federal? Maybe McClellan was the right choice after all?
What do you think? Why?
