Gen Thomas Abram Huguenin
Birth: Nov. 18, 1839
Beaufort County
South Carolina, USA
Death: Feb. 27, 1897
Charleston County
South Carolina, USA

Civil War Confederate Brigadier General. Huguenin received his early education in the Charleston County school system. He then attended the Citadel where he graduated in 1859 and afterward travelled to Europe with the intention of studying civil engineering. However due to the imminent threat of war he returned to Charleston and sought a commission. In January of 1861 he enlisted in the Confederate service as a 1st Lieutenant of Company A, 1st regiment. Shortly after hostilities began he was promoted to lieutenant and in July of 1861 was promoted to captain and to major on March 16, 1865. He was present at the capture of Fort Sumter on April 12th & 13th, 1861 and commanded the rear guard at the evacuation of Morris Island. He was in command of Fort Sumter from July of 1864 to February 17, 1865 and was the last to leave the fort. Two months after the evacuation of Fort Sumter Huguenin surrendered at Greensboro and would later be paroled at the end of the war. During the war he was wounded on four occasions never incapacitating him from continuing his duties. After the war Huguenin returned to Charleston where he engaged in planting and was subsequently promoted to General in the South Carolina militia. He later was appointed superintendent of street and held that position until he died. (bio by: Saratoga)
