Civil War Confederate Brigadier General. A lawyer in practice at the start of the Civil War, he mustered into Confederate service as Captain of Company C, 19th Mississippi Infantry in 1861. He eventually rose to Colonel in command of the regiment and fought at the Battles of 2nd Bull Run, Chancellorsville, Antietam and Gettysburg. In January 1864, he was promoted Brigadier General and was assigned to command a brigade in the Division of the 3rd Corps. He fought with great gallantry at Spotsylvania, during the siege of Petersburg, during the Federal assaults on Forts Gregg and Whitworth. He was with the Army to the end, eventually surrendering his corps at Appomattox. After the War, he resumed his legal practice and later became the president of the Mississippi Valley & Ship Island Railroad. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
