Civil War Confederate Brigadier General, Georgia Governor. Along with Brigadier General Joseph Finegan, he was in command of the defense of Florida from Union troops at the Battle of Olustee on February 20, 1864. The battle, while small compared to other battles of the war, was the largest in Florida. After their defeat at Olustee, the Union forces remained in Jacksonville until the end of the war, not venturing out in a significant force again. The Union had casualties of 1,861 and the Confederacy had casualties of 946. The battle is re-enacted every February. Alfred Colquitt served as Governor of Georgia from 1876 to 1882.
