And, how do you rate JEB Stuart?

There, you see. I knew I'd forget somebody. I'd say Stuart was great early in the war, but from the Gettysburg campaign on, fell to borderline great, or less. He just wasn't as effective. Time, desperation and attrition were passing him by.

Sheridan was great chasing Early through the valley in '64 and working with Grant around Petersburg. But you also asked how they'd be considered in other times, and in my mind he falls steeply in his handling of Native Americans in the postwar era. Could also take points away from Sherman for that.

Unlike his little buddy, U.S. Grant,.

You're just egging me on with that one, right?
