I share a birthday with this man. One of Cleburne's Own, as I like to call members of Cleburne's division. He was assigned as a Colonel to command a provisional brigade in Preston's Division at the battle of CHickamauga. He was cited for excellence by Cleburne and others and was promoted to rank from the date of the battle.
