Which Civil War general was nicknamed “Old Crazy?”

credit: @hoosier

*Hints: The general was mortally wounded at the Battle of Spotsylvania Court House and was only 35 years old when he died. His last name is the same as a common foodstuff.

Edit - Perrin did die at Spotsylvania, but he was 37 years old and his name doesn't sound like anything I'd want to eat. Though he shared the quality of conspicuous bravery with James Rice, I can't find any indication that Perrin was ever nicknamed "Old Crazy."
