Civil War Confederate Army Officer, CSA Congressman. After being admitted to the bar in Virginia, he moved to St. Louis, Missouri and went into law partnership with Judge John Wickham. In 1860 he acquired the St. Louis “Bulletin”, a "states' rights" newspaper. He became an aide to Governor Clairborne Fox Jackson and then Assistant Adjutant General to Major General Sterling Price in the Missouri State Guard and in the Confederate service, with the rank of Colonel. He was then elected to represent Missouri in the Confederate House of Representatives, and left for Richmond, Virginia where he served until the surrender. After the war he worked for the New York “Daily News”, authored several articles for “Century” magazine, and authored a book-length account of his experiences entitled “The Fight for Missouri”.
