While updating the AotW page for Colonel Albert Lewis Magilton, I came upon a quote about him. It’s from West Point classmate and fellow Lieutenant George B McClellan,  in a December 1846 letter McClellan wrote another Army officer, from Mexico.

McClellan called him “the never-sufficiently-to-be-admired Magilton”.

I don’t know exactly what it says about Magilton, but it seems pretty rich coming from a man of GBM’s apparent ego.
