Who do yall think was the better cavalry general-- John Hunt Morgan or Mosby?

Mosby was a Lieutenant Colonel not a General. Comparing the two men is like comparing apples and oranges. John H. Morgan, often engaged in raids against the enemy's supply and communications lines, was more of a traditional cavalrymen and filled that roll in the Army of Tennessee. By the end of 1862 he was commanding a division. Mosby commanded a battalion of partisan rangers and very rarely operated in concert with the Army of Northern Virginia. Both men were higly effective leaders, but their duties and responsibilities were so disimilar it is impossible to comare them.
