Is Zachary Taylor a good general in Evony?

Zachary Taylor is a natural Evony Defense General. He suited in particular towards a Ranged Defense. Indeed, a huge part of this buff comes directly from his special skill. This makes him powerful even without much development.

This Evony General should not be used in attack. The majority of his buffs are only active when in defense.
