The American Civil War was a civil war in the United States of America between 1861–1865. Eleven Southern slave states declared their secession from the United States and formed the Confederate States of America (the Confederacy). The Confederates, led by Jefferson Davis fought against the Union, which was supported by all the free states and the five border slave states.

Hostilities began on April 12, 1861, when Confederate forces attacked a US military installation at Fort Sumter in South Carolina. Lincoln responded by calling for a volunteer army from each state, leading to declarations of secession by four more Southern slave states. Both sides raised armies as the Union assumed control of the border states early in the war and established a naval blockade. In September 1862, Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation made ending slavery in the South a war goal[1], and dissuaded the British from intervening.[2]

The American Civil War was the deadliest war in American history, resulting in the deaths of 620,000 soldiers and an undetermined number of civilian casualties.

A general officer is an officer of high military rank and in the uniformed services of the United States, general officers are commissioned officers above the field officer ranks, the highest of which is colonel in the Army, Marine Corps, and Air Force and captain, in the Navy, Coast Guard, Public Health Service Commissioned Corps (PHSCC), and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Commissioned Corps (NOAACC). During the Civil War both the Union and the Confederates required leadership in order to develop strategies and command troops through the various battles. A large number of Generals were promoted on both sides to facilitate the defeat of their rival.

In 1860, at the outbreak of the Civil War, there were only a select number of general officers serving in the United States Army. The following is a list of those officers who had been promoted to the rank of general prior to April 1, 1861 either by substantive rank or rank or brevet. Those officers with a brevet rank also held a lower substantive rank of an earlier date. The highest rank the officer received before the aforementioned date is shown, substantive or brevet. The allegiance of the officer during the Civil War is also shown.

Following the attack on Fort Sumter the U.S. Army re-instituted the promotion of volunteer officers. On May 16, 1861 three appointments were made to Major General of U.S. Volunteers. These officers (in order they were appointed) were John A. Dix, Benjamin F. Butler and Nathaniel P. Banks.[4] These three officers thus outranked all other volunteer officers for the duration of the war. The following day 34 appointments were made to Brigadier General of U.S. Volunteers.[5] The first three names to appear on the appointment list were Samuel P. Heintzelman, David Hunter and Erasmus D. Keyes (Ulysses S. Grant's name appeared 18th on the list). By 1865 there were over 1,000 generals by substantive or brevet rank in the Regular Army, Volunteer Army or state militias.
