For me, it was Pete Longstreet, although I also could have been Cump Sherman.
I could do a lot worse.

I’m William T.Sherman. He’s always been my favorite Union general, so I can live with that.

I am quite the combination: McClellan at 65% and Lee and Burnside both at 60%. How a person could be that mix I have no idea.

I came up as US Grant, of course.

Brooks, how the hell do you end up as RE Lee?

Sherman here as well…almost Longstreet though. I taught Sherman’s March this morning, so maybe Cump is on my mind.

It’s a tie here…Lee and Longstreet 70%. Odd quiz, but the thing that it got right is I am no Phil Sheridan… 0%.
Now I feel better.:)

I’m USG. I guess it’s my penchant for buying clothes from the Walmart sales rack and then having a drink afterwards. I even surprised myself–but not as surprised as Ethan! Here are my top four:
U.S. Grant 80%
William T. Sherman 75%
General James Longstreet 70%
Robert E. Lee 60%
Go figure . . . .

Excuse me, Eric? You turn out to be the type of guy who gets his a** kicked by Ambrose Burnside! How could it be worse than that? . . . And–tell the truth–how many times did you have to take the test before you no longer came out Phil Sheridan?!?
At least no one came out James Ledlie. Now THAT would be bad.
Yours truly, Professor Rafuse–Insane
