He proposed to ferry his army down the Potomac and Chesapeake, then march up the Virginia peninsula and attack Richmond, the Confederate capital, from the east.Short, dapper and full of confidence, McClellans appointment as commander of the Army of the Potomac came in the aftermath of the disastrous Union defeat at Bull Run.

McClellan looked like another Napoleon and thought he was, but underneath he was overcautious, a fatal flaw in a war leader.In the end his campaign was a failure. It dashed all hope for a quick end to the conflict, and finally convinced Lincoln to issue the Emancipation Proclamation.
