Why did you say that Howard was the "worst commander in the Union Army."?  I note that Sherman had faith in Joward, making him the commander of the Army of the Tennessee after the Battle of Atlanta.  I also note that Howard's wise placement of his troops, as they swung to the west of Atlanta, put him in good position to fight Ezra Church.  Although Sherman's and Howard's personal styles of leadership were different, it seems to me that Sherman valued Howard as a fellow commander.
