His initial service in the Confederate Army was as aide-de-camp to his father Gen. Benjamin Huger. After his stint as Major in the Artillery he was as Executive officer in E. Porter Alexander's Battalion in the Army of Northern Virginia. When the battalion accompanied Longstreet to Georgia he arrived too late for Chickamauga. He then accompanied Lo gstreet to Tenn.and He commanded the Battalion at Knoxville. He was given perma ent command of the battalion in early 1864. Probably still a major as he did not make Lt. Col. until February 27, 1864. He then transferred back to Lee's army.
