  • Sorry, that's incorrect
    Answer:

    Vicksburg.  Lincoln pursued a rapid self-education on military matters after being elected president.  He soon felt confident enough to take an active role in planning the grand strategy of the war.  On a November evening he brought a map to McClellan's house and outlined a plan of attack in the west.  McClellan, an egoist in the extreme, felt put upon by Lincoln's counsel.  Soon after, he began to privately refer to Lincoln as "the original Gorilla," or as an "odd bird."
