I once made the statement in a reply that major players or well known Civil War personalities were difficult to comment on because most everything that occurred to them is well known. Now I find the opposite to be true as well. There are some individuals who did so little or had nothing out of the ordinary occur on their watch that makes it equally hard to comment on them.I can find nothing on McCullough.
