20242 Major General Winfield Scott Hancock - CDV
of General Winfield wearing his General’s frockcoat
and sitting comfortably in a chair with one arm
resting on the table.  President Grant said General
Hancock, “stands as the most conspicuous figure of
all the general officers who did not exercise a
separate command.  He commanded a corps longer
than any one, and his name was never mentioned as
having committed a blunder during  battle. His genial
disposition made him friends, and his personal
courage and his presence with his command in the
thickest of the fight won for him the confidence of
troops serving under him.  No matter how hard the
fight, the 2nd corps always felt that their commander
was looking after them.” The General fought,
encouraged, and led all the men under his command
through each of the battles of which he was a part.
