It can be hard to be famous, especially if your image ends up at the bottom of urinals in New Orleans. The American Civil War produced plenty of ridiculous, incompetent, politically chosen, corrupt, but mostly inexperienced leaders. While the Union may be remembered for having the majority of these, the Confederacy had their fair share, too. Funny nicknames and facial hair will never make up for the chaos these fools caused between 1861 and 1865.
