|Death: ||Mar. 6, 1836|
Alamo Defender and Adjutant of the Alamo Garrison. He traveled to Texas in 1835 as a First Lieutenant of Thomas H. Breece's company of the New Orleans Greys Volunteers and took part in the siege of Bexar. After the battle he was promoted to Captain and served as Lieutenant Colonel James C. Neill's adjutant with the Texan force left to garrison the town.
He entered the Alamo garrison as adjutant under Lieutenant Colonel William Barret Travis on February 23, 1836, when the Mexican army arrived. He is believed to have sounded the first alarm on the morning of March 6.
Upon the death of Lt Col Travis he became the de facto Alamo Commander. It was Baugh who ordered the withdrawal to, and for the last stand to be made at, the Long Barracks where the most ferocious fighting occurred. He died in battle at the Alamo.
