Discussion Both Stonewall Jackson and John Buford are said to have started deliriously giving military orders on their death beds - any other examples of this?

I knew about Stonewall Jackson but I just read that the Union general John Buford did something very similar when he died in December 1863. I'm wondering if there are any other examples of this from other Civil War figures or wars in general.

From Wikipedia:

John Buford died at 2 p.m., December 16, 1863, while Myles Keogh held him in his arms. His final reported words were "Put guards on all the roads, and don't let the men run to the rear."[11]
