Civil War Confederate Brigadier General. A native of Florida and the son of United States Army Colonel James S. McIntosh, who was killed in the Mexican War, he graduated last in 1849 from the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York. When the Civil War broke out he immediately resigned his Army commission and was commissioned a Colonel in the Confederate States army. Promoted to Brigadier General, he was given command of the First Brigade in General Ben McCulloch's division. During a charge against the Union forces at the Battle of Pea Ridge, Arkansas, General McCulloch was killed. Command fell to General McIntosh and fifteen minutes later he was shot through the heart and died in the exact same spot as McCulloch.
