Generals of the Civil War
Civil War generals numbered in the hundreds during the war. Generals of the Civil War either won or lost battles due to their competence as commanders or their incompetence. Some generals such as Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant are famous for their brilliant tactics and wise decisions on the field of battle.

Below you will find a list of the most famous leaders during the Civil War.
