(1826-85) Union Major General, during the American Civil War; U. Presidential Candidate 1864; Governor of New Jersey 1878-81 McClellan graduated second in the West Point class of 1846, served in the Mexican War, and at the outbreak of the Civil War was appointed major general of volunteers. In August 1861, after the Federal disaster at First Manassas, he assumed command of the Army of the Potomac. From this point forward, McClellans organizational ability was offset by his hesitance in pursuing the enemy, causing Lincoln to permanently relieve him in November 1862 after the battle of Antietam. He ran unsuccessfully against Lincoln as the Democratic presidential candidate in the election of 1864. McClellan, New York, Dec[ember] 7/83. On a 2 ¼ x 5 slip of paper.
