John Sedgwick (5/12)

List item

One of the most active generals in the entire American Civil War, Sedgwick built up a reputation on both sides of the conflict as a solid and dependable leader who was well liked by his men. During the battle of Spotsylvania Court House Sedgwick would meet his end however, marking himself out as one of the highest ranking casualties of the entire war. 

Last words: “They couldn’t hit an elephant at this distance.”
