Brigadier General. He joined the Confederate forces as lieutenant colonel of the 2d Virginia Cavalry in May of 1861. Much of his fighting took place in the Shenandoah Valley and in western Virginia. In the summer of 1862, he led a charge at the Second Battle of Bull Run, and led a strong defense at Crampton's Gap during the Antietam Campaign. He took part in the Battle of Brandy Station and the Gettysburg Campaign. His promotion to brigadier general went through by November of 1864, although it was never officially confirmed.  (bio by: Laurie)
