Henry Halleck has not always fared well with historians. Curt Anders, noted Civil War expert, presents a Halleck whose cool-headedness in crisis, competence in military management, and unflinching fidelity to principle perhaps didn't win the war for Lincoln, but certainly helped keep him from losing it.
