Best Answer

There was no Confederate General in the Anaconda Plan. The name was given derisively to the long-term strategy recommended by the Commander-in-Chief of the U.S.Army, Winfield Scott. The idea was to blockade the ports and liberate the Mississippi, to stop the South importing the goods it needed. Since most people thought the war would be over in weeks, the plan was rejected. But later, the North adopted a programme basically similar. An interesting case of a top General applying valuable insight, but too old to fight his corner.

The elderly General Winfield Scott.

At the time, there was no 'credit' attached to this scheme. It was derided everywhere, because nobody expected it to be a long war.

But in the end, the North had to adopt a plan very similar.
