Brigadier General, CSA, Civil War. In 1834 he graduated 25th in his West Point class and was brevetted a 2nd Lieutenant in the 5th Infantry. Resigning his commission after only 10 months' service, he was back in Georgia looking into the prospects of becoming a planter. He followed agricultural pursuits, working land in Georgia and Alabama. Later he served 11 months as Major of the 1st Alabama Volunteers in the Mexican War. He was a delegate to the Georgia secession convention in 1861. With the coming of war he joined the 16th Georgia Infantry as a Captain and this time found himself under arms for an extended period. He was elected regimental Colonel in February 1862. The 16th Georgia first saw service in the Virginia peninsula fighting and in the Seven Days' Campaign. Later it fought in the Maryland invasion, and in the Chancellorsville and Gettysburg campaigns. He was appointed Brigadier General on August 29, 1863, and assigned to Lieutenant General James Longstreet's command in Tennessee. He then saw action at Chickamauga and Knoxville. In Virginia again in spring 1864, he led a brigade into the Battle of Wilderness, fighting until its ammunition was nearly exhausted. Shortly afterward, his health began to fail, and he resigned his commission on September 20, 1864. After the war, due to his health, he lived out the rest of his life quietly in Georgia. In common with six other Confederate Generals buried in Magnolia Cemetery, he has a marker on his grave, and a military marker at a memorial to all the generals.
