Civil War Confederate Brigadier General, Senator and US Congressman. He was a member of the North Carolina State Senate when elected as a Whig to the Twenty-eighth Congress, serving, 1843 to 1845. In 1847, he was reelected as a Whig to the Thirtieth Congress and to the five succeeding Congresses, serving until 1858.
