Ignoring all the Union Generals who became POTUS. I couldn't think of any worse political generals than Cleburne and Forrest. Cleburne killed his career by advocating freeing the slaves and Forrest threatened to kill his commanding officer. I don't call that practicing politics.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Winston Smith writes:

Not a West Point trained professional officer, but a civilian before the war who rose to general rank through political influence. I realize that could about Grant or Sherman, but they were West Point. For the sake of this poll, I specifically exclude West Point lads.
