      I think McClellan is talking about a commission in the Regular
      Army, not volunteers where he was already a Major General. These
      weresomewhat limited, and he did get it, ranking from Sept. 20,
      1862 (Heitman & Eicher confirm this date). Warner, however,
      says he got the BG commission earlier, so it may be that he is
      wrong.

      Not by the dates he cited. I think it he has it in spring of 62, and Hooker had a BG in Vols. long before that. Dr. Thomas G. Clemens Professor of History
