In the earliest months of the war, one hears much about Beauregard up through 1st Bull Run, but even when men like Lee come into the picture as the star of the CSA in the the eastern theatre, Beauregard seems to often still show up. However, his Northern opponent at the battle, Irwin McDowell, seems to largely disappear from most general histories of the war. What happened to him for the rest of the war? Was he dismissed like McClellan after Antietam or merely subordinated to a lower post as happened to men like Burnside after Fredericksburg and the Mud March? It seems until the Overland Campaign, the Union armies in the East burnt through commanders after nearly ever campaign, what then happened to that first disappointing and defeated general?
