William Tecumseh Sherman

Evidence He was a great strategist.  

Warrant 1 he was the only man to twice receive thanks of congress during the war, once for his actions at Chattanooga and again for capturing Atlanta and Savannah.

Warrant 2 Sherman was commissioned as a colonel and first saw action in the Battle Of Bull Run, where his actions got the attention of Abraham Lincoln, who promoted him to brigadier general.

Warrant 3 Successfully captured the vital city of Atlanta, an act that certainly helped Lincoln win reelection.
