Nobody has mentioned David Farragutt .  I just read an article about the Battle of Mobile Bay.  Yes he was a Wooden ship type man but he learned there the value of his ironclads and used them.  He amazes me .  The first Admiral in the US Navy. 

I agree with the mention of Meigs and Thomas .  They did their jobs and did them well. 

Don't forget ole Nathan Bedford Forrest .  With no military training his natural abilites are amazing to read about.
