George B. McClellan: The Disposable Patriotby McHugh, Michael J.
Publisher: Christian Liberty Press
Retail Price: $6.00
Issue: Summer 2001
Presenting George McClellan as both a patriot and a Christian of the highest order, Michl J. McHugh's biography is intended for high school-aged students. Excerpts from McClellan's wartime correspondence with his wife reveal an intimate dimension to a general who, in McHugh's rendering, often seems down on his luck: "In spite of the uncertain support and lack of reinforcements, George McClellan would need to press on [in the Peninsula campaign] to the best of his ability. The Army of the Potomac had a job to do, and the young Napoleon would have to make the best of a difficult situation." Includes handsome photos.
