In the North, I'd like to nominate a couple of names, both of whom were involved in notorious 'incidents' that largely obscured the rest of their service - Jefferson C. Davis and Thomas J. Wood.
Dave...you are absolutely on target with both those choices, especially T.J. Wood. He is an interesting individual and of course, carries the stigma of his petulant behavior at Chickamauga.
