  We have just passed the anniversary date of the beginning of the siege of Yorktown in 1862. At the risk of making a slight departure from the theme of this thread (Which Federal general was General Lee's toughest opponent), I'll present an article about Yorktown written by an author who is definately not a fan of General McClellan.

Siege of Yorktown, 4 April to 4 May 1862

  Most amusing to me was a line written which said that: " McClellan's presence (At Lee's Mills on 16 April) removed any chance that a serious assault might have developed."

  Since some of the most heated discussions on this forum involve opinions (Often about scenarios that never took place), perhaps some members will have opinions about the author's: "general" view of the quality of McClellan's generalship.
