Civil War Confederate Brigadier General.

He led troops at the Battles of Belmont, Shiloh and in the Battle of Richmond. In 1863, he was transferred to cavalry command, in the Armies of West Tennessee and northern Mississippi. Promoted Brigadier General in February 1865, he fought in various Tennessee campaigns until he surrendered his corps at the end of the war. After the Civil War, he moved to Fresno, California and became a farmer. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
