He was regarded as a brave and effective commander. He was left on the field at Gettysburg with multiple wounds and remained a prisoner for more than a year. Following his parole, he was promoted to brigadier general and commanded a brigade in Mahone’s division.[1] He served in that capacity until the surrender at Appomattox.
