During the civil War the Confederate Army had a large number of Full Generals, 8 in all. Not all these men were successful at that rank. I am going to attempt to give them a grade. Please note I am not attempting to grade them as Brigadier, Lieutenant or Major General just their performance as Full General. Robert E. Lee A Edmond Kirby Smith B Samuel Cooper B- (as Adjutant General and Inspector General) Joseph E. Johnson C+ P.G.T. Beauregard C John B. Hood C Braxton Bragg D+ ( missed a D because of his victory at Chickamauga) Albert Sidney Smith Incomplete (I would give him a B or B- for what he did do) In your view are there any corrections of grade needed. Perhaps I am being a bit harsh?
