7. William H. Winder

William Henry Winder is a controversial US general during the War of 1812. He was defeated repeatedly while leading numerically superior forces. Unfortunately, for the US, Winder’s troops were the only forces available to protect Washington from British attack in July 1814. He made no attempt to oppose the enemy and Washington, including the White House, was razed by the British troops. Winder led US troops again in the Battle of Bladensburg and he failed to perform effectively.
