Best Answer

There were originally five full Generals appointed, and their order of ranking caused many feuds.

First in seniority was an elderly unknown called Samuel Cooper, who was not involved in any major actions.

The others were Sidney Johnston, Robert E. Lee, Joe Johnston and P.G.T. Beauregard.

Joe Johnston believed he qualified as the most senior officer, but his most recent posting in the US Army was not in the front line, so he was passed over.
