After being prisoner exchanged, he served at Chattanooga, the Atlanta campaign and was promoted Brigadier General in September, 1864. As a brigade commander, he led his troops against Federal positions at Franklin and was captured again at Nashville. After being exchanged he saw service with the Army of Tennessee during the Carolina campaign, which ended with General Joseph E. Johnston's surrender on April 26, 1865. After the war, he served in the Alabama House of Representatives and was an auditor of the US Treasury. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
