    Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson.

    Biography:

    Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson was born in Clarskburg, Virginia. His parents died when he was young, and he lived with his uncle who secured an appointment for him at West Point. He was one of the best-loved generals of the South. He earned his name at 1st Bull Run, when his unit was described as standing its ground like a "stone wall." His masterpiece was the the Shenandoah Valley campaign of 1862, a diversion that prevented the Union forces from reinforcing McClellan on the Virginia Peninsula. Many historians consider this to be one of the most brilliant military campaigns in history.
    Leadership Attributes:

    Stonewall commanded the loyalty and love of his soldiers. Lee praised Stonewall for his daring and improvisation in battle. He was one of Lee's most trusted commanders, and Lee was dismayed at his death, saying he had lost his right hand. Jackson preferred not to control from headquarters, but to be where the action was. In fact, when he died he was returning from a reconnaissance mission and was shot by his own troops.

    Ulysses S Grant!

    Biography:

    Unsuccessful in civilian life, Ulysses S Grant was made for the battlefield. Grant was the military leader who defeated the Confederates and their innovative generals. After the war, he was elected President and oversaw Reconstruction in the South. He died of throat cancer — the result of a lifelong habit of cigar smoking — but completed his memoirs before his death in 1885.

    Leadership Attributes:

    Personally reserved, Grant was tenacious in battle. Once he set a course, he wanted to see it to its end, as in the siege of Vicksburg. He was one to seize the initiative as well. After several failed attempts to get to Vicksburg, Grant moved his army south to cross the Mississippi — during this time he was cut off from all communication and most supplies. The taking of the city on July 4, 1863, was a turning point in the war. Ulysses S Grant's nickname was "unconditional surrender" — and he trusted fighting more than diplomacy. But when opposing forces did surrender, he was usually magnanimous in their treatment.

    George Washington!
    [​IMG] Portrait: George Washington
    National Archives

    Biography:

    George Washington was not only the first president but also an accomplished general. Against daunting odds, Washington launched a guerrilla war that lasted for six years and ultimately drove the British from the colonies. At many points during the conflict, the army was close to disintegrating. But through Washington's force of leadership, the colonists succeeded and he established a model for future American military leaders to follow.
    Leadership Attributes:

    General Washington was known for his cautious, measured, and highly successful generalship. Understanding that conventional war against the British was useless, he waged a well-planned guerilla campaign. He was also skilled in diplomacy, both as a politician and in his military career. He elicited French help in forcing the surrender of Cornwallis at Yorktown. Also, he deftly negotiated the relations between military and civilian authority. Personally, the first President was reserved. But he won the love and respects of his troops — and nation.

    Cool test.... thanks....[winkthumb]

    Sherman for me too - I don't know if I'm flattered or insulted . . .
    Darned good General - but he raped the South.

    Leadership Attributes:

    Sherman was tenacious in battle, and served with Ulysses S Grant in his campaigns — including the siege of Vicksburg, where his tenacity payed off. Sherman led by initiative as much as by planning. During his "March to the Sea," he was cut off from supply lines and his troops lived off the land. Sherman was a soldier, not a diplomat. In fact, after the war, when his name was bandied about for a nomination, he said, "If nominated, I will not run; if elected, I will not serve."
