Fine to me, he was also an excellent administrator and organiser, we could give also him Signal_Cmd

what about an engineering trait due to his background? he spent his prewar career as an army engineer...then spent half the war as a engineer, and half as a cavalry officer...

otherwise, i agree his stats look good.

I talked to Pocus about a "chief of staff" trait that could be usefull. I think he might qualify for this one...
About the engineer trait, I thought about it but no significant achievement either. Let's try not to overcrowd our leaders with abilities.

I think 'reckless' should be added. 'Hothead's' effects are too strong to be applied to him, but I think he definitely merits 'reckless'.

If Lee has it, Wilson should really, really have it.

He was a very accomplished engineer, and cavalry commander. He did a lot for Federal cavalry organization throughout the later part of the war and commanded a cavalry corps under Thomas/Sherman in the West.

My point in mentioning Lee was that if could be considered reckless, one such as Wilson ought to be as well.

James Wilson was responsible for the great raid into Alabama and Georgia in 1864 where 17,000 cavalry brought the war to central Alabama. Forrest was defeated, Selma was captured, Columbus, GA fell, and Wilson reached Macon, GA when Johnston surrendered. Wilson then participated in the capture of Davis in Irwinville, GA. Wilson's men, like Sherman's, were disappointed when Lee surrendered as they thought their ultimate destination was to be Virginia.


Wilson the fighter handled Forrest well and was a major part of Thomas' effort at Nashville. However, I don't want to go crazy with his stats.
