Major Alexander McCulloch served as an Aide-De-Camp for James Coffee under Andrew Jackson during the Creek and Indians Wars and later served with Jackson against the British during the War of 1812-1815 in the states of Alabama, Georgia, and Florida. It is stated he participated with signal gallantry in the Battle of New Orleans, where the "Buchwalds" Rifles triumped over the victors of Waterloo. His son General Henry Eustace McCulloch described him as such- "He was very much such a man as my brother Ben, in all respects, save one, he was not an economist, and loved to spend money on his friends. His generosity was also abused by some, upon whose bonds he had signed as a surety, through all of which his estate was so much wasted that he found it impossible to meet the expenses necessary in securing an education to his younger children, a misfortune fully appreciated by him."
