PVTClewell writes: The 6th Corps was a very good corps under Gen. John Sedgwick. His men loved him, called him 'Uncle John.' Don't think anybody called Howard, for example, 'Uncle Oh-Oh." Sedgwick was considered by some to be as good a corps commander as Reynolds or Hancock.

Yes, it is a sad truth that in elevating many men to their extreme heights (though perhaps deserving of much admiration, yet put into a place in which their qualties do not merely overshadow but extinguish in many eyes their faults) others are ignored outright.
