General officers of the Union Army

This roster includes in alphabetical order under the various grades the names of all general officers either of full rank or by brevet in the United States (Regular) Army and in the United States Volunteers during the Civil War. The highest rank attained, whether full or by brevet, only is given, in order to avoid duplications. It is, of course, understood that in most cases the actual rank next below that conferred by brevet was held either in the United States Army or the Volunteers. In some cases for distinguished gallantry or marked efficiency brevet rank higher than the next grade above was given. The date is that of the appointment.

    Lieutenant-General, United States army (full rank)

  • Grant, Ulysses S., Mar. 2, 1864.

    Lieutenant-General, United States army (by Brevet)

  • Scott, Winfield, Mar. 29, 1847.
