Is there an example of a truly great Civil War general on either side who can never have been said to be ruthless?  Is there a general who declined to accept the "victory at all costs" philosophy and left an important battle or declined to implement a tactic or strategy because the cost of doing so "at all hazards" would be too great? 

Now I'm struck dumb, Fan. I doubt anyone, ever, could have said that better!

My humble thanks.
