    No problem.

    1.) General George Gordon Meade

    2.) General Hiram Ulysses Grant (The S. was not his real name, but a nickname he got at West Point by accident. It stuck)

    3.) General William Techumseh Sherman

    4.) General George Edward Pickett

    5.) Frederick Douglas

    6.) General George Brinton McClellan

    Anything else?

    The popular answer to question 4 is Pickett but it's not entirely accurate. The assault on the third day was led by three generals; Pickett, Pettigrew and Trimble.

    Trimble was killed in the action that afternoon and Pettigrew was killed during the retreat across the Potomac on July 4th. Thus only Pickett (and his publicity-aware wife) were left. That's why it's known as Pickett's Charge.

    History is truly written by those who are left.
