That is much too simple and too modest a rating.
McCulloch fought in the War of Texas independence and received a battlefield commission for his handling of artillery.
He lead men and commanded a wing of battle (division) during the relief of San Antonio. He also scouted and campaigned against the Comanche.
During the Mexican War Taylor made him head of all army scouts.
He held high political office in Texas twice, was made Sheriff of Sacramento CA, served as Marshal under two Presidents in Washington, where he spent most of his time studying military arts.
He was selected by the President to be one of two Peace Commissioners sent to Utah after the Mormon War. Afterward, President Buchanan used McCulloch as a “Secret Agent” and sent into Mexico.
He was made Major General of Texas Militia. In February 1861 he was commissioned Col. In the Confederate Army by Davis himself. This is extraordinary, because Davis held a grudge against McCulloch. Yet despite this Davis made him the senior officer in Texas.
A few days later McCulloch surprised General Twiggs when he surrounded his installation with 1000 men and received his surrender.

This was only the first suggestion.
The second is much better, as at least a 4-2-2
. But I would change his Special Abilities.
Indian Fighting Skill to Irregular Fighting Skill
. He had demonstrated these skills against the Mexican Army raiders, bandits, and Comanches on numerous occasions.
. He was a popular and legendary figure across the country, having done everything and been everywhere and was looked up to by men where ever he went.
him Master Spy
. This is why he was given secret missions and made chief scout by Taylor in Mexico. He and his scouts had been within a mile of the Supreme Army Commander (Santa Anna) on several occasions. Unfortunately for all concerned, it was his information on Union positions at Pea Ridge that lead Van Dorn to attack Curtis, against McCulloch’s advice.
That gives him a total of three. He could easily have more but he didn’t live long enough to demonstrate his abilities in this War. It is difficult to say what he could have been.
