Generic Generals - CSA

Tue Feb 13, 2007 3:31 pm

We shall add some "named" generic generals to the game DB, using the list of real generals from the ACW.

These generals will come like 6 at start + 3 new ones per year, and will help players organize their divisions and corps. We plan to have a small DB of the 20-25 most important of these generals.

This is of course NOT counting the big guys list we have been discussing for weeks.

Please note the following restictions that are a MUST:

* All these leaders are valued 3.1.1, 0 Pol
* The have lowest seniority compare to the exisiting list
* They have no portraits (we just lack time for this)
* They have no abilities

In chosing among the list below, please keep in mind the above and the following extra criteria:

- The leaders must have been promoted at least to Maj. Gen
- They should have been promoted a bit earlier than 1865 :sourcil:
- They must be fighting generals at least at large brigades or division level (no staffers or bureaucrats)
- Possibly 'famous' (at least of few of you heard about the guys), i.e. they could have made it to the big guys list (and will...when we have time :nuts: )
- We need only 25 !


Now is an alphabetical list to choose from. I have at the disposal of those wh o want it a big word doc (over 100 pages) with much more info on all these generals, and you can trace the complete data here: http://sunsite.utk.edu/civil-war/generals.html

I'm not sure if anyone was going to start compiling the Confederate list....
I apologize if I'm stepping on anyone else's toes...here's what we have so far in alphabetical order.

William Bate:

http://www.generalsandbrevets.com/sgb/bate.htm
(see link for picture)

Bate fought as a regimental and brigade commander in the Confederate Army of Tennessee through 1863. He was promoted to Major General in 1864, after which he led a division in the Atlanta Campaign, Franklin, Nashville, etc.

3/1/1 at the division level

Barnard E. Bee:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barnard_Elliott_Bee%2C_Jr.
(see link for picture, or entry in other "missing leader" thread

A Brigadier at First Bull Run, this general would have been a senior division commander on par with Longstreet or Jackson had he not been killed in this first battle. Who knows what he could have done later in the war?

Doesn't seem to have chosen the best defensive ground at Bull Run, but didn't shrink from the fight either.

(What if scenario)
3/2/2 at Division level (Corps entry too?...)


Charles W. Field:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_W._Field

Here's a picture:
www.generalsandbrevets.com/sgf/field.htm

Field commanded a brigade in A.P. Hill's Light Division until he was wounded at 2nd Bull Run. From there he served as a recruiting officer until he was recovered enough to serve in the field again. In 1864, Field took over as commander of Hood's old division in the I Corps. He served in this capacity for the remainder of the war.
3/2/2 with "Recruiting_Officer" at Division level

John B. Floyd:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_B._Floyd

Former Governor of Virginai and Secretary of War. Performed poorly under Lee in West Virginia in 1861 and was transfered to the West and was the senior confederate commander at Fort Donelson. After an initially successful breakout attempt he ordered the troops to return to their entrenchments.
Unwilling to surrender himself he turned over the command and escaped with most of his brigade on a steamship. He was then ordered to evacuate military supplies from Nashville. Floyd again abandoned his command leaving four days before the Union troops arrived. He was dismissed from Confederate service for his action at Donelson and Nashville and returned to Virginia where he became a major general in the state militia. He died of natural causes in august 1863

Suggested ratings at Division level - Dispirited Leader, Cautious, 3-0-0

Robert Hoke

http://members.aol.com/jweaver303/nc/hoke.htm

http://www.generalsandbrevets.com/sgh/hoke.htm

His capture of Plymouth NC earned him a promotion to major -general. He led a division under Beauregard in the defense of Petersburg and the counterattack driving Butler back to Bermuda Hundred. Fought in the Fort Fisher campaign and ended the war under Johnston in North Carolina.

Proposed Ratings - 4-2-2

Bushrod Johnson:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bushrod_R._Johnson
(see link for picture)

Johnson commanded a brigade at Fort Donnelson, Shiloh, Perryville, and Murfreesboro. He commanded a division at Chickamauga...then was officially bumped to Major General in May of 1864. Johnson was shipped east and commanded a division in the Siege of Petersburg.

3/1/1 at Division level


Edward "Allegheny" Johnson
:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_..._%28general%29

Johnson had his own force in the 1862 Valley Campaign. He was injured, and did not get back into the field until the 1863 Gettysburg Campaign. He was promoted to Major General, and commanded Jackson's old division. He served in this capacity until he was captured at the Battle of Spotsylvania in 1864. After his exchange, he commanded a division in Hood's Army of Tennessee.

3/2/2 at Division Level

David R. Jones:

http://www.generalsandbrevets.com/sgj/jonesdr.htm
(see link for picture)

Jones commanded a brigade at Bull Run. Later he was bumped to Major General and commanded a division under Magruder during the Peninsula / Seven Days campaign. He also commanded a division in the I Corps, Army of Northern VA at 2nd Bull Run and Antietam (he died of disease in early 1863)

3/1/1 at Division level


Joseph B. Kershaw


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_B._Kershaw

Kershaw commanded a superb bridage of South Carolinians in the Army of Northern VA. through 1863. After Longstreet got rid of Lafayette Mclaws, Kershaw was promoted to division command and served at this level for the rest of the war. There isn't a ton of personal evidence out there about Kershaw, but if the performance of his troops is any indication of his leadership ability, then he would get pretty good ratings. This would fall under the "what if" category, but IMHO Kershaw would have had a good chance of being promoted earlier if some other I Corps officers had been injured or removed sooner.

Some highlights as a Brigade commander under Mclaws:
Antietam - Kershaw delivers a solid counterattack
Fredricksburg - Kershaw fights off the last two Federal attacks on Marye's Heights
Gettysburg - Kershaw's brigade is as tough as nails in its assault, taking on a number of units from the Federal II and III Corps.
Division Commander:
The Wilderness - Helped push back the Federals in Longstreet's counterattack

I would recommend 3/3/2 as a division commander....maybe the "Strong_Morale" for "battle hardened individuals" if you want to add some more flavor.

John McCown

http://www.civilwarhome.com/mcCownbio.htm

http://www.generalsandbrevets.com/sgm/mccown.htm

Despite a poor performance along the Mississippi McCown was promoted to major-general on march 10th, 1862. After being sent to east Tennessee he took part in the Confederate invasion of kentucky. He was considered the worst division commander in the army by Bragg but was chosen to lead the attack at Stone's River. Bragg blamed him for the defeat and brought him up on charges. McCown was found guilty and relieved of duty for 6 months. He never again held a major command.

Suggested ratings at Division level - 3-0-0

Benjamin McCulloch:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_McCulloch
(see link for picture)

McCoulloch was one of the Confederate co-commanders at Wilson's Creek in 1861.....he did not get along well with Sterling Price so after the battle the Confederate government installed Earl Van Dorn over both of them. McCoulloch commanded the right-wing of the Southern army at the Battle of Pea Ridge, where he was killed.

I don't think McCoulloch was ever promoted to Major General, but he led division-sized forces and probably would have gotten the official promotion if he had lived longer.

4/1/1 and "Indian_Fighter" (see pre-war experiences in wikipedia entry) at Division level

Robert Ransom

http://members.aol.com/jweaver303/nc/ransomr.htm

http://www.generalsandbrevets.com/sgr/ransomr.htm

Led a division at Fredericksburg and was promotedto Major- General on may 26th, 1863 while commanding the military district of Southeastern Virginia. He served as a cavalry commander under Longstreet in his Tennessee campaign. Returning to Virginia he commanded a division in the defense of Petersburg under Beauregard and commanded the cavalry in Early's valley campaign until illness forced him to take leave. He ended the war as the commander of the 1st Military District of South Carolina.


Suggested ratings - Cavalryman 3-1-1

Gustavus W. Smith:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gustavus_Woodson_Smith
(see link for picture)

Smith, a Major General, commanded a division under Joe Johnston in the eastern theater. He briefly commanded the army after Johnston was injured at the Battle of Seven Pines...however he had a nervous breakdown once he took command and was quickly replaced by Robert E. Lee.

3/1/1 at Division level

Carter L. Stevenson:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carter_L._Stevenson

http://www.generalsandbrevets.com/sgs/stevenson.htm
(see this link for pictures)

Stevenson was a Major General who commanded Confederate division sized forces throughout the western theater of the war. He fought at Perryville, Vicksburg, Chattanooga, Atlanta, and Nashville. He seems to have been a fairly stout defender in these battles.

3/1/2 at Division level.

William B. Taliaferro:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_B._Taliaferro

Taliaferro was a militia commander in Virginia when the war broke out. Fighting under Stonewall Jackson, he became a division commander in 1862. He was wounded at 2nd Bull Run, but returned to command a division at Fredricksburg. After this battle, he was transfered to the south-east where he served in South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida.

Suggested stats: 3/1/1 with "Militiaman" at Division level

Isaac R. Trimble:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isaac_R._Trimble
(see link for picture)

Trimble commanded a brigade under Stonewall Jackson during the 1862 campaigns until he was wounded at 2nd Bull Run. He was promoted to Major General in Jan. 1863, but wasn't healthy enough to get a field command.

Trimble is probably most famous for his role during Pickett's Charge at Gettysburg. He tagged along with the Army of Northern VA during the campaign as an officer without a command....with all the leader casualties during the battle, Lee needed a division commander on day 3, and Trimble led Pender's division during the assault. Here he was wounded again.

Had he not been hurt at Second Bull Run, Trimble probably would have been a field commander as a Major General sooner....

3/1/1 at Division level

John George Walker:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_George_Walker

Commanded a division at Antietam.

"In November 1862, Walker was promoted to major general and transferred to the Trans-Mississippi Department, where he was given command of 12 Texas regiments, numbering 12,000 men, training at Camp Nelson in Arkansas. Walker formed the regiments into a Division, which earned the nickname "Walker's Greyhounds" for their ability to move quickly over many miles on foot. From November 1862 until the end of the war, the Greyhounds were formed exclusively of soldiers from Texas, and did not leave the Trans-Mississippi Department."

4/1/1 and "Fast_Move" at division level

William H.T. Walker

http://www.generalsandbrevets.com/sgw/walkerwht.htm
(see link for picture)

Walker commanded a brigade in the Vicksburg campaign. He was promoted to Major General in may of 1863. Walker commanded the reserve corps at Chickamauga. He also commanded a divisiion during the Atlanta campaign, where he was killed

3/1/1 at Division level

Cadmus M. Wilcox:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cadmus_M._Wilcox

Wilcox spent the first couple years of the war as a very solid, hard-fighting brigade commander in R.H. Anderson's division of the Army of Northern VA. When Lee reorganized to 3 Corps after Chancellorsville, the argument could be made that Wilcox was probably the top commander to not be bumped to division command. After Gettysburg, Wilcox finally was promosted to Major General and took command of Pender's old division in the III Corps. He served in this capacity until the end of the war.

3/2/3 at Division level


WINDER, Charles Sidney


http://stonewall.hut.ru/leaders/winder.htm

Was commanding one of Jackson's three divisions, along with Powell Hill and Ewell in the summer of 1862, when he was killed at Cedar Mountain.

Seemed to have done a good job, but was killed early in the war. Like Barnard Bee, his early death shouldn't preclude his inclusion in the game, given his prominence before his death.

Suggested: 3/2/2 at Division level

Jones M. Withers

http://www.generalsandbrevets.com/sgw/withers.htm

Withers commanded a division at Shiloh and Murfreesboro. Afterwords his health deteriorated, and he took command of Dist. of North Alabama, then command of Alabama state reserve forces.

Suggested: 3/1/1 at Division level

ZOLLICOFFER, Felix Kirk

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Felix_Zollicoffer

A division commander of Sidney Johnston's far right wing in Kentucky, and famous for the destruction of his force at Mill Springs, where he was killed in 1861.

Not a professional soldier, and he was nevertheless aggressive and rash. Another division commander killed early in the war.

Suggested: 3-1-0 and "Hothead" at Division level

I must be slowing down in my old age. You guys keep adding generals right before I do.

I would add American Indian to McCulloch. He also commanded Indians

Very late note on McCulloch. There are some problems with his current status in the game. First, I agree with the Indian Fighter, the Native American as sugested is probably not needed (I'd rather add Pike and give him that stat (essentially a 3-0-0-Native American), delay Watie's entry by at least a year). But McCulloch currently lacks the cavalryman stat he should have (he was to form the 1st Texas Mounted Rifles which command transferred to his brother H.E. McCulloch when Ben got the Indian Territories Command, Ben's command always included a extremely large body of Cavalry or Mounted Rifles (by Pea Ridge he had 6 Cavalry or MR Regiments plus 2-3 such battalions, that makes for roughly half his Division (in actual strength even higher)), he also seems to have handled them pretty well (though McIntosh also played a role in that, unfortunately he died at too low a command level to include in the game). Lastly, McCulloch's seniority should be about equal to Price's, one of their problems was deciding on who was the senior commander. I'd also tend to raise McCulloch's combat stats, but I guess 4-1-1 is fair.

In short, Ben McCulloch, 4-1-1, Indian Fighter, Cavalryman, seniority of ~13 or ~32 (don't quite understand one part of the game, Price is set at 32 in the files, yet seems to be 13 in the game...).

Mosby

Mon Nov 19, 2007 8:17 pm

What happened to John Singleton Mosby?

born 1833 died 1916
middle class planter family
graduated Univ. of Virginia
Lawyer by profession

Was a private for 1st Virginia Calvary under Jeb Stuart
Mosby was promoted colonel in December 1864

accredited for "Ride Around McClellan"
famous for Guerrilla warfare
raided Fairfax court house and captured General Edwin Stoughton on 03/08/1863

Also captured colonel Dulaney in September 1863
Largest raid on the Union was 08/13/1864 in Berryvill near Harpers Ferry where he attacked 325 wagons and 900 men.

Captured 250 including 7 officers

He was such a thorn in the Union's side. They sent General Armstrong Custer to intercept and capture Mosby. Custer retailated by executing captured Mosby raiders. Mosby recipritated and executed Custers men.

By his own account, Mosby's operations kept at least 30,000 Union soldiers away from the front lines.


How do we account for this successful man in AGEOD?

Mosby

Mon Nov 19, 2007 8:33 pm

What happened to John Singleton Mosby?

born 1833 died 1916
middle class planter family
graduated Univ. of Virginia
Lawyer by profession

Was a private for 1st Virginia Calvary under Jeb Stuart
Mosby was promoted colonel in December 1864

accredited for "Ride Around McClellan"
famous for Guerrilla warfare
raided Fairfax court house and captured General Edwin Stoughton on 03/08/1863

Also captured colonel Dulaney in September 1863
Largest raid on the Union was 08/13/1864 in Berryvill near Harpers Ferry where he attacked 325 wagons and 900 men.

Captured 250 including 7 officers

He was such a thorn in the Union's side. They sent General Armstrong Custer to intercept and capture Mosby. Custer retailated by executing captured Mosby raiders. Mosby recipritated and executed Custers men.

By his own account, Mosby's operations kept at least 30,000 Union soldiers away from the front lines.


How do we account for this successful man in AGEOD?

Mosby is definitely in the game.
But he's a not generic one. He's one of the important ones! :nuts:
So he has his own portrait, combat values (5/4/1) and 4 abilities (Cavalryman, Partisan, Master Spy and Screener).
He enters the game on feb 1963 around the Shenandoah valley with his own attached unit: 43 VA Bn raiders.
Pretty complete isn't?? :coeurs:

Cheers
