10. Major General John A. Logan
Logan, educated in traditional schools, felt some friction during the war when working with West Point educated officers. He felt slighted at being bypassed for command of the Army of the Tennessee after General McPherson's death. However, he was Grant's choice to replace General Thomas at Nashville, until that general launched a successful attack on the Confederates. After the war, Logan was a staunch supporter of what we know today as the National Guard and the Reserve Officers Training Command.
