Joe JohnstonAnswerThe Confederate commander at First Bull Run was PGT Beauregard. The Confederate commander at Second Bull Run was Robert E. Lee.
With regard to the first answer: First Bull Run swayed back and forth until Joe Johnston's reinforcements arrived by train to finally ensure a Confederate victory. Later, Johnston and Beauregard quarreled about who had won the battle. Technically, Beauregard was the Confederate commander at First Bull Run, but he likely would have lost the battle without Johnston and his army arriving in the nick of time.
On the Union side, Irvin McDowell.
On the Confederate side, Joseph E. Johnston, who ceded some authority to P.G.T. Beauregard on account of the latter's intimate knowledge of the terrain.

Joe Hooker was the commander of the Union first corps (I Corps) at the battle of Antietam. He would later be elevated to commander of the Union Army of the Potomac. He served in that capacity from January 1863 through June 1863. He would command this army at the Battle of Chancellorsville, a Union defeat, and was removed from command just prior to the Battle of Gettysburg.
The First Battle of Bull Run began when Union soldiers advancing into Virginia under Gen. McDowell met with Confederate soldiers commanded by Gen. Johnson. The armies mostly fought over control of a strategic hill and farmhouse, and the battle ended after Confederate General "Stonewall" Jackson outmaneuvered and routed Union forces.
