He was appointed brigadier on February 14, 1862. The Texas and Arkansas troops he commanded subsequently became part of McCown's Division. His troops did not make it to Shiloh as they were still in Memphis on April 23. His troops did make it to Corinth but were not led into battle as Hogg died on May 16, 1862.
