19054  Gen. Henry Halleck  CDV, 3/4 view of the
general in uniform.   Member of the West Point
class of 1839.  Although he was very successful in
business and in writing and acquired a fortune,
he was not so well regarded as a military
officer.  His primary virtue may have been his
unflinching insistence upon order and discipline,
which was lacking in the early days of the war.
