        Leaders and Generals | Ken Burns: The Civil War

        View a gallery of Civil War leaders and generals, from the President of the Confederate States of America, Jefferson Davis, and the Commander of the Confederate armies, Robert E. Lee, to the Commanding General of the Union forces, Ulysses S. Grant, and General George McClellan. During the years 1861-1865, the Civil War was fought in 10,000 locations across the United States, and nearly tore the country in two. The war claimed more than 600,000 lives, but it would also bring the end of slavery and introduce a new political and economic order to the country.
