    George Brinton McClellan (Dec 3, 1826 – Oct 29, 1885) was a major general during the American Civil War and the Democratic Party candidate for President in 1864. He organized the famous Army of the Potomac and served briefly (November 1861 to March 1862) as the general-in-chief of the Union Army. McClellan's leadership skills during battles were questioned by President Abraham Lincoln, who eventually removed him from command, first as general-in-chief, then from the Army of the Potomac.

    General George McClellan was the commander of the Union Army of Potomac, who at the start of the war was known as "The Young Napoleon", but his indecisive leadership and a string of horrible defeats that could have been victories deprived him of that nickname. His poor generalship is known for allowing the war to drag on, and cost more American lives.

    George McClellan was a U.S. Army officer, who served as a major general during the Civil War. Well liked by his men, McClellan briefly served as general-in-chief of the Union Army. but his hesitation to attack the Confederacy with the full force of his army (despite a significant advantage in numbers) put him at odds with Abraham Lincoln.
