Civil War Confederate Brigadier General. When the South declared secession from the Union in 1861, he at once raised volunteers for the Confederacy and was appointed Lieutenant Colonel of the 13th Tennessee. He gained the reputation of a fighting officer, engaging in all the battles at Belmont, Shiloh, Richmond, Perryville, Chickamauga and Missionary Ridge. Promoted Brigadier General in November 1863, his brigade took part in the Dalton-Atlanta campaign. At the Battle of Vining Station, July 4, 1864, his leg was taken off by an exploding shell and he was permanently disabled for military duty. After the war he engaged in farming and was elected clerk of the criminal court, Shelby County, Tennessee, in 1878. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
