Civil War Confederare Brigadier General. Born in Fairfield, South Carolina, he later was a cotton broker and postmaster in Columbia. A veteran volunteer of the Seminole and Mexican wars, he was a resident of New Orleans, Louisiana, at the start of the Civil War. He briefly held the lieutenant colonelcy of a South Carolina regiment, resigned it to join the Louisiana secession convention, then accepted appointment as Colonel of the 1st Louisiana. Throughout the Civil War, he served under General Braxton Bragg, first at Pensacola and the Siege of Fort Pickens, later in the occupation of Corinth, Mississippi, in 1862, then in the Battle of Shiloh. He was appointed Brigadier General on September 30, 1861, and, on organization of the campaign to Shiloh, took command of a brigade made up of his 1st Louisiana, Major Felix H. Robertson's battery, and the 21st, 22nd, 25th, and 26th Alabama regiments. As the 1st brigade of Brigadier General Jones M. Withers' division in Bragg's Corps, at Shiloh, his men were so heavily engaged that in a short time he and his second and third in command were all severely wounded by cannon projectiles. He had an arm amputated on the field but his wound was mortal and he lingered until his death.
