Which "worst general ever" if asked to lead an army in battle against the worst of his peers would win and why ?

This thread is going to end badly as well.

Whoever's soldiers showed up to fight and win the day.

Samsonov and Rennenkampf
John Fremont

Austrian "unfortunate general Mack" could probably deliver a decent performance against a lot of other defeated generals.

Ben Butler vs Braxton Bragg.

My money would be on Bragg, though I wouldn't wager more than ten bucks. Butler would have a better handle on the political implications of the battle, of course.

Percival vs. Graziani?
