tribeticus wrote:Good Candidates to make Training Officers (same trait as Halleck, Richard Taylor) are:
CSA: Taylor & Cooper are vanilla trainers but Cooper gets booted upstairs... add: Samuel Jones (I added him in the Portrait Mod forum), Hardee (Wrote the book on training), Bragg could be changed from Drilling Master to Trainer IMHO. Thomas Jackson knew how to maximize his troops but there no way you keep him stationary. Sometimes it makes sense to fill a Corps up with volunteers and put them with a training officer in a strategic location and let them train until needed. But that is only if you add the training officer trait to someone like Hardee or Jackson.
USA: Sigel, Halleck, McClellan are vanilla trainers. I usually put Sigel next to McCellan out east in PA because of the massive amount of volunteers available and train four units at a time (2 volunteers ea). Halleck stays out west. Rufus king is already a training master and could be changed to training officer which is better. Thomas Meagher was a heck of a trainer. Charles Griffin and Andrew Humphreys were some serious disciplinarians

He is a highly effective Corps commander, and does a lot of good work in 1862 West, and some of the Bloody Roads South campaigns. Don't be afraid to use him for fighting, 1 CP is no big deal in a Corps and Hotheaded is not that big of a disadvantage if the stack is large enough not to need to retreat early. Plus his stack gets more effective over time due to his TM ability.
Sure, he is no Grant, but compared to Buell, Bragg is great.
