Who did Lincoln ask to lead the Union Army?

Answer

Lincoln asked to different generals to lead the Union Army. The first was such a failure that Lincoln had to take command of certain elements of the army himself. He finally asked Ulysses S. Grant to take the helm of the Union Army. This single act stemmed the tide of the southern victory march and turned the war to Lincoln's favor.
