Best Answer

Irvin McDowell was a Brig. Gen. of the Union Troops in the Civil War. He led Union troops to battle at Manassas (or Bull Run). McDowell led his troops into the First and Second Battles of Bull Run. He made mistakes in both. One mistake was that he led his unready troops into battle to early and lost many men.
