Death: Aug. 30, 1893

Civil War Confederate Army Officer. He was a staff officer and author of many valuable writings on the Army of Northern Virginia. After attending the Universities of Nashville and Georgetown, he was enlisted as Lieutenant in the 3rd Tennessee (CSA) Infantry regiment. During General Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson's 1862 Valley Campaign, he was detailed as a aide on the staff of Major General Richard Ewell. Wounded in the shoulder at the Battle of Cross Keys, he then served for a period of time on General Joseph Johnston's staff from 1862 to 1863. Promoted to Major, he rejoined General Ewell's staff as an Assistant Adjutant General and as Inspector General for the Second Corps, Army of Northern Virginia. He was captured at at the April 1865 Battle of Sailor's Creek and not released until July 19, 1865. After the War, he served as a farmer, stock breeder, and as a state legislator in Tennessee. He wrote extensively about the conflict, and his writings are considered among the best on the Confederate side. Many of his letters were collected and published in Louisana State University Press's "Campbell Brown's Civil War With Ewell and the Army of Northern Virginia." George Campbell Brown committed suicide in Michigan in 1893. (bio by: aphillcsa)
