CSA Brigadier General, Civil War. Congressman. He attended the University of Mississippi, and Lebanon Law School. He then practiced law in Tenneessee and Georgia before the war. When the conflict began, he was living in Augusta, Georgia, where he enlisted in the Confederate service as Lieutenant in the 15th Georgia. The regiment eventually was assigned to the brigade of Brigadier General Robert A. Toombs, the fiery Georgia politician and his father-in-law. He fought in the Seven Days' Campaign, and at Second Bull Run and Atietam, rising in regimental rank. In January 1863 he was promoted to Colonel and assigned command of his regiment. He and his Georgians, now under Brigadier General Henry L. Benning, were part of Major General John B. Hood's division of the I Corps. At Gettysburg on July 2, 1863, the regiment participated in Hood's charge on the Union III Corps. Benning's brigade fought at Devil's Den and before Little Round Top. In September he led his regiment in another attack, at Chickamauga, where he was wounded. The I Corps returned to Virginia, where he saw combat at the Wilderness, in May 1864. On November 16th, he was promoted to Brigadier General and command of a brigade in Major General Joseph B. Kershaw's division. He led his brigade in the Petersburg and Appomattox campaigns. On April 6, 1865, at Sayler's Creek, Virginia, he and a number of Confederate generals were captured. Released from Fort Warren, Massachusetts, in July, he returned to Georgia. He resumed his law career in Washington, Georgia. He later served one term as a United States Congressman from 1871 to 1873. He returned to his law practice in Washington, Georgia, where he died.
