Army of the Cumberland 

 

The origin of the Army of the Cumberland dates back to the creation of the Army of the Ohio in November 1861, under the command of Brig. Gen. Robert Anderson. The army fought under the name Army of the Ohio until Maj. Gen. William S. Rosecrans assumed command of the army and the Department of the Cumberland and changed the name of the combined entity to the Army of the Cumberland. When Rosecrans assumed command, the army and the XIV Corpswere the same unit, divided into three "grand divisions" (wings) commanded by Alexander McCook, George H. Thomas, and Thomas L. Crittenden.
