Confederate Generals have BG (Brigadier General), MG (Major General), and LG (Lieutenant General), among the gold stars used to denote their rank.
    Some Prefixes are used to denote a persons profession or specialty (ie: the green 'H' identifies Medical personnel, The Anchor with USN or CSN is for Naval Personnel).
