I admire both for the same reasons: solid and smart planners and leaders, determined personalities who each welded a great team and led it into great battles and campaigns. While letting their people work, they also stood ready to (and did) intervene as needed, sometimes dramatically shaping the progress of the engagement. Both men also shared a commitment to duty and loyalty, which drove these Southern-born officers to stay with the Union.
