Civil War Confederate Soldier. Julius Franklin Howell, at the age of sixteen, entered Confederate service and would in time become a member of the 24th Virginia Cavalry. On occasions, he was on detached duty, serving general officers as a trusted courier. In the waning days of the war he was captured and imprisoned until after the war's end. In the post-war years the Confederate veteran became a well-regarded educator. He remained invested in the preservation of the memories of the Confederate soldier, and his title of General was obtained from his tenure as the Commander-in-Chief of the United Confederate Veterans. Howell's long and useful life spanned more than a century, and when he died at the age of 102, he was purported to have been the final survivor of General James Longstreet's Corps.
