Civil War Confederate Brigadier General. He was a prominent Louisiana planter and with the outbreak of the Civil War was commissioned a senior officer on the staff of General Albert Sidney Johnston. Promoted Brigadier General, he commanded the Arkansas Brigade in the battles of Perryville, Murfreesboro and commanded a division at Chickamauga in 1863. In 1864, he took command of the District of Louisiana, held off the Federals during the Red River Campaign and later was assigned to overall command of the infantry at Mobile, Alabama, until to its surrender in 1865. After the war, he returned to his plantation in Louisiana and was assassinated over a real estate dispute in 1870. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
