There were many important Union generals during the American Civil War. Some, like Grant, Sherman, and Chamberlain were great leaders and household names. Lincoln had many failures in selecting generals who would fight until Ulysses Grant took command and crushed the rebellion.

These men were either poor leaders, would not fight, incompetent or made tragic mistakes that cost thousands of lives prolonged the war.
