Worst Confederate General?
Above: Gen. Roswell Sabine Ripley, C.S.A.
The website of Gatehouse Press (publishers of, inter alia, The Gettysburg Magazine and Morningside Books) provides an online newsletter that is well worth visiting on a frequent basis. I’m a big fan of historian Robert K. (“Bob”) Krick, not only for his unique take on the Civil War but also for his entertaining writing style. His two-part profile here http://www.gatehouse-press.com/ of General Ripley may provide a ready answer to the question posed in the header.
