The two ranking generals were Grant (North) and Pemberton (South).

Robert E. Lee for the south & Ulysses S. Grant for the north (even thought the north had a lot more generals)
The primary strategy for the north was twofold. To cut the southern states apart and capture key sea ports. Sherman goal was to capture Savannah thereby cutting off most of the south from Lee's army in Northern Virgina. (Grant had completed cutting the south in two in 1863 when he captured Vicksburg on the Mississippi River). Afterwards, Sherman was to head north eventually attacking Lee from the south while Grant attacked him from the north. Grant forced Lee out of Richmond and ended the war before Sherman arrived.
The North had several generals, as did the South. Winfield Scott was the highest ranking general at the start of the war. Henry Halleck and, eventuallly, US Grant replaced him.
Ulysses S. Grant is on the north's side.
