McClellan and Lincoln

Abraham Lincoln and George McClellan

This is a photograph of President Abraham Lincoln and General George McClellan.  It was taken on October 3, 1862, shortly after the Battle of Antietam.  The relationship between Lincoln and McClellan was stormy throughout the war.  Lincoln, while impressed with McClellan's work in building the Army of the Potomac, was endlessly frustrated with McClellan's hesitancy to take the initiative.  McClellan was popular with his troops for perhaps the exact reason that frustrated Lincoln.  McClellan had built a grand army, and he was not eager to see it destroyed.
