History is full of generals who contribute to victory more by their action before (or after) the day of battle then on the day of battle. We've already review two of these Friend in the State Hose and Political savvy there is a tendency in looking at the Civil War to scoff at "political generals" like Butler or Banks. We tend to forget that Grant and Sherman had political connections and used them. For that matter Robert E. Lee appointment to command of the Army of Northern Virginia was due at least as much his close relationship to CS President Davis as to his Military record up to that point. Don't avoid these card for fear of getting labeled a political general.
I would love feed back on any of these assessments especially from players who have used them in a Campaign.
