McClellan took command of the Army of the Potomac, he demonstrated his faith in him by promoting him to Colonel and putting him in charge of the Artillery Reserve, an idea he had masterminded. He returned the favor by continued loyalty to "Little Mac" long after it became politically inappropriate.
