Gen. George B. McClellan as commander of the demoralized army. A superb organizer, McClellan rebuilt the army and on 20 November 1861 staged a formal military review here, between Munson's Hill and Bailey's Crossroads. Lincoln and his entire cabinet attended. Occupying nearly 200 acres, some 50,000 troops, "including seven divisions -- seven regiments of cavalry, ninety regiments of infantry, (and) twenty batteris of artillery," took part in the review, at that time the largest ever held in America.
