William Henry Armstrong (1833-1896) who wrote under the pseudonym A Citizen-Soldier, was the author of Red- Tape and Pigeon-Hole Generals (1864). The Army of the Potomac was the major Union Army in the Eastern Theater of the American Civil War. It was created in 1861, but was only the size of a corps (relative to the size of Union armies later in the war). Its nucleus was called the Army of Northeastern Virginia, under Brig. Gen. Irvin McDowell, and it was the army that fought (and lost) the war's first major battle, the First Battle of Bull Run. The Army of the Potomac underwent many structural changes during its existence. The army was divided by Ambrose Burnside into three Grand Divisions of two corps each with a Reserve composed of two more. Hooker abolished the Grand Divisions. Thereafter the individual corps, seven of which remained in Virginia, reported directly to army headquarters. In late 1863, two corps were sent West, and-in 1864-the remaining five corps were recombined into three.
