    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

      Tom,

      Could Warner have mixed up when Hooker received his BG USV
      commission with when he received his BG Regular Army commission?

      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.
