The special Archives Publication Series of the Historical
Services Division are produced as a service to Florida
communities, historians, and to any other individuals, historical
or geneological societies, and national or regional governmental
agencies which find the information contained herein of use or

At present, only a very limited number of copies of these
publications are produced and are provided to certain state and
national historical record repositories at no charge. Any
remaining copies are provided to interested parties on a first
come, first served basis. It is hoped these publications will
soon be reproduced and made available to a wider public through
the efforts of the Florida National Guard Historical Foundation

Information about the series is available from the Historical
Services Division, Department of Military Affairs, State Arsenal,
St. Augustine, Florida.

Robert Hawk


Most of the material contained in the five volumes of Florida
Soldiers: CSA (Special Archives Publications 90-95) are taken
directly from a book published by the state in 1903 entitled
"Soldiers of Florida". The material contained therein was as
known at that time. Research since that era have shown them to
be much less than completely accurate.

...As most rosters were from the earliest days of the war, many
individual names of those who volunteered later are not included.

...Many individuals served with more than one unit and that
information is only rarely noted.

...Many records were lost or at least un-available to the authors
of that 1903 study.

...A considerable amount of the information contained in the
volume was derived from witnesses alive at that time.

For many of the rosters, considerable information was apparently
available while for others, very little beyond the rolls
themselves was accessible. More recent studies of several
Florida regiments and specific companies within other regiments
has indicated approximately 10% of the names of individuals who
eventually served with the units to be missing. Actual casualty
figures indicate that the total fatal casualties noted in the
1903 book to be only approximately 65% of the actual figures for
the war.

The presently available records are substantial in number and
scattered in several locations. Perhaps someday a researcher
will be able to compile a more accurate record of Florida's
service in the war.


State documents are distributed to the following depository libraries and are available
to Florida citizens for use either in the libraries or on interlibrary loan, subject to
each library's regulations. An asterisk (*) indicates libraries that are obligated to
give interlibrary loan service. Requests should be directed to the nearest epository.

General Edmond Kirby Smith.
Appointed Major of Cavalry May, 1861; promoted Lieutenant-Colonel
May, 1861; Brigadier-General June, 1861; Major-General 1863; General Au-
gust, 1863.
Gen. Edmond Kirby Smith was born in St. Augustine, Fla., on May 16,
1824; died at Sewannee, Tenn., March 28, 1893. His father was Joseph L.
Smith, the first presiding judge of the United States Superior Court for the
Eastern District of Florida. General Smith was appointed and admitted to
West Point July 1, 1841; graduated July I, 1845, standing twenty-fifth in his
class; appointed brevet 2nd Lieutenant in the 5th Infantry July I, 1845; 2nd
Lieutenant in the 7th Infantry August 26, 1846; Ist Lieutenant March 9,
1851; Captain of 2nd Cavalry March 3, 1855; Major January 31, 186. lie was
breveted Ist Lieutenant April 18, 1847, for gallant and meritorious conduct in
the battle of Cerro Gordo, and Captain August 20, 1847, in the battle of Con-
treras and Cherubusco, Mexico; resigned April 26, 1861. After the'close of
the Mexican War Lieutenant Smith was assigned to \West Point, where he re-
mained for three years- as assistant instructor in nathcm.t:ncs; later he served
under Major Emory, on the boundary commission to locate thq line between
Mexico and the United States. Upon the organization of the cavalry regi-
ments in 1855, he was assigned to the 2nd Regiment as Captain and ordered
to Texas, where he was engaged against the Comanche Indians. Upon the
secession of Florida in April, 1861, he resigned his commission in the United
States Army and tendered his services to the Confederate States.
His value was fully appreciated by the Confederate officials and he was
given the position of Major of Cavalry, and almost immediately promoted
Lieutenant-Colonel under Van Dorn; before he could join his command he
was set to work at Lynchburg to organize the troops gathered there. There
Gen. Joseph E. Johnston found him, made him his Adjutant-General and took
him to Harper's Ferry. While acting as Adjutant-General he was promoted
to Brigadier-General and assigned to a brigade in Johnston's army. When the
battle of Manassas was fought he marched thirty miles to join the movement
and arrived at such an opportune time that, with Kershaw, he succeeded in
changing impending defeat into a brilliant Confederate victory In this bat-
tie he was severely wounded, which disabled him for several months.
Upon his recovery he was sent to East Tennessee, where he took conm-
mand of the detached r'ght wing of Bragg's army. In 1863 he was promoted
to Major-General, and, by order of President Davis, assumed command of the


trans-Mississippi department. After Grant's capture of Vicksburg and the
effectual cutting of the Confederacy in two, communications with General
Smith's headquarters were so irregular, that the Confederate Government
found it advisable to endow General Smith with greater powers and a higher
rank. He was made full General, becoming the sixth officer of the Confederacy
to hold that rank; the others being Cooper, Lee, Joe" Johnston, Beauregard,
and Bragg, in the order named. After.the close of the war he became presi-
dent of the Atlantic & Pacific Telegraph Co., which position he resigned to
accept the presidency of the University of Nashville, which he held until 1875.
He was then made professor of mathematics in the University of the South,
at Sewannee, which position he held at the time of his death.
Major-General William H. Chase.
General Chase, for many years the leading citizen of Pensacola, was a
native of Massachusetts. Appointed cadet in the military academy at West
Point and graduated thirtieth in his class; appointed brevet 2nd Lieutenant
of Engineers March 4, 1815; 2nd Lieutenant April IS, 1815; 1st Lieutenant
March 31, 1818; Captain January I, 1825; Major July 7, 1838; resigned Octo-
ber 30, 1856; appointed Colonel Florida State troops 1861; promoted Major-
General Florida State troops i861.
During his career in the United States Army he filled many an important
position in the Engineer service, superintending the construction of Forts Pike
and Jackson on the Mississippi River, the defences of Pensacola harbor, Fort
Taylor and many other works, as well as river and harbor improvements. He
was active in promotion of internal improvements, and after his resignation
was president of the Alabama & Florida Railroad Company. At the beginning
of the year 1861, when the first organization of troops was made in Florida,
Colonel Chase was appointed Major-General of State troops. In this capacity
he was in command at Pensacola, seized the public works on the mainland
and summoned Fort Pickens to surrender. He was in command at Pensacola
until Gen. Braxton Bragg was assigned to duty there in March, 1861. On
account of his advanced age General Chase did not participate in later military
operations. He died at Pensacola February 8, 187o, at the age o 72.

Major-General William Wing Loring.
Appointed Brigadier-General May 20, 1861; promoted Major-General
February 15, 1862.
Maj.-Gen. William Wing Lor'ng was a soldier from his boyhood. He was
born in Wilmington, N. C., December 4, 1818; in early chi dhood became a
resident of Florida, and when only 14 years of age was in the ranks of the
volunteers, lighting Indians in the swamps and everglades. He did not have
a West Point training, but he was educated in the true school of the so'dier-
active campaign life. On June 16, 1837, he was appointed a 2nd Lieutenant.
After that he went to school at Alexandria, Va., and Georgetown, D. C. He
afterward studied law and was admitted in 1842 to practice. He then went
back to Florida and before long was elected to the State legislature, of which
he remained a member for three years. In the Seminole, War of 1836-38 he


was appointed senior Captain of a regiment of mounted riflemen, and in the
following year he was made Major commanding. He served under General
Scott in all the battles of the Mexican War, from Vera Cruz to the City of Mexico
Mexico, and for gallant conduct was breveted Lieutenant-Colonel. While en-
tering the City of Mexico at the head of his regiment he lost his left arm.
After the war the citizens of Apalachicola, Fla., presented him with a sword.
In 1849, during the gold fever in California, Colonel Loring was ordered to
take his regiment across the continent and take command of the Department
of Oregon. On this occasion he marched his command a distance of 2,500
miles, taking with him a train of 600 mule teams. He held the command of
the Department of Oregon until 1851. For five years he was in command on
the frontier and fought many combats with the Indians. Then by permission,
he visited Europe and studied the military systems of the various nations. On
his return he was placed in command of the Department of New Mexico; but
during that very year the long sectional quarrel between the North and South
changed from a war of words to open hostilities. Loring naturally sided with
the South: The Confederate Government was glad to accept his services, and
on May 20, I861, commissioned him as Brigadier-General. After the defeat
and death of Gen. Robert Garnett, in western Virginia, General Loring was
sent to take charge of the Confederate forces in that quarter. He commanded
one wing of the army under Lee, n the Cheat Mountain campaign, where the
soldiers had little fighting but abundance of hardship. .In December, 1861,
Loring's command united with Stonewall Jackson at Winchester, and in Jan-
uary was engaged in the winter expedition to Bath, Hancock and Romney.
Through General Loring's solicitations to the War Department at Richmond
his division, which had been left at Romney, was ordered back to Winchester.
This interference on the part of the government at Richmond came near caus-
ing the resignation of General Ja kson. On February 15, 1862, General Lor-
ing was commissioned Major-General and assigned to the command of the army
of Southwest Virginia. Nothing of any great importance occurred in that
region, the soldiers being for the most part occupied in picket duty and oc-
casional skirmishes with the enemy. In December, 1862, Loring was sent to
take command of the Ist corps of the Army of Mississippi. He had charge for
a while at Fort Pemberton, which was designed to defend Vicksburg from any
expedition sent 'by way of Yazoo Pass. It was a cotton-bale fortification,
constructed by Captain Robinson of the Confederate Engineers, and situated
on the over-flow bottom lands of the Tallahatchie and Vallabusha Rivers,
near their junction. Here generall Loring, with three cannon and 1,50o men,
defeated a fleet and land force. In the hottest of the fight Loring stood upon
the cotton-bale parapet and shouted to his men: 'G ve them blizzards, boys!
Give them blizzards!l" From this tine his men nicknamed him "Old B:iz-
zards." At the disastrous battle of Baker's Creek Loring was cut off from the
rest of the army. Finding there was no chance to unite with the main body
he marched his division eastward and joined General Johnston at Jackson.
He and his troops were thus fortunately saved from being shut up and cap-
tured at Vicksburg. He was subsequently under the command of Johnston
and then Polk in North Mississippi. At the opening of the campaign of 1864


Polk hastened to Georgia to make a junction with the army under Joseph E.
Johnston. During the Atlanta campaign General Loring commanded a divis-
ion in Polk's corps and, after the death of Polk, the corps itself until the ap-
pointment of Gen. A. P. Stewart. Loring continued to command his divis--
ion 'n Stcwarts'corps until the surrender of the army of Tennessee in North
Carolina. After the war he went abroad and, in 1869, with other Confederate
officers entered the service of the Khedive of Egypt, and was appointed In-
spector-General. In 1870 he was made Commandant of Alexandria and given
charge of the coast defences of Egypt. In 1875-76, during the Abyssinian
War, General Loring commanded the Egyptian Army. He was raised to the
dignity of pasha for his services. In 1879 he and the other American officers
in the service of the Khedive were mustered out and returned to the United
States; after which he resided in Florida for a while and then made his home
in New York, where he wrote his book entitled 'A Confederate Soldier in
Egypt." lie died in New York December 3o, 1886.

Major-General Martin L. Smith.
Appointed Major of Engineers April I, 1861; promoted Brigadier-Gcn-
era' April II, 1862; Major-Genera Nov. 4, 1862.
Maj.-Gen. Martin L. Smith was another of the many gentlemen of North-
ern birth who, residing in the South, adopted the sentiments of the people
among whom they lived, and with zeal and loyalty supported the Confederate
cause. State sovereignty was the political doctrine of the majority of the
founders of the Republic, and at times has been asserted by leading men of
every political party. Hence it is not surprising that Northern men living in
the South were just as prompt to resent any infringement of the rights of their
adopted States as were the native-born citizens. It is a well-known fact that
many people I ving in the North believed in the justice of the Southern cause
and sympathized with the Southern people in their desperate struggle against
overwhelming odds. General Smith was born in New York City in 1819. lie
entered the military academy in 1838 and wss.graduated in 1842 as brevet
2nd Lieutenant, Topographical Engineers. iHe became full 2nd Lieutenant in
1843; served during the Mexican War as Lieutenant of Topographical Engi-
neers, and was brevetted 1st Lieutenant May 3o, 1848, for meritorious con-
duct while making surveys in the enemy's country. Ile was .also employed
by the Government in making surveys for the improvement of Savannah
River and for a ship canal across the Florida peninsula. In Ju!y, 1856, he
was commissioned Captain for 14 years' continuous service. .During this
time he had also been engaged in surveys in the Department of Texas. From
1856 to 1861 he was chief engineer of the Fernandina & Cedar Keys Railroad
in Florida. .
Spending most of his mature life among the people of the Scuth, Captain
Smith, from his observation and experience of Southern affairs, became fully
convinced of the justice of the position taken by the Southern people, and
when it became evident that war would soon begin he resigned his commiss on
April I, 1861, and offered his services to the Confederate States. He was at
once commissioned as Major in the corps of Engineers May, 16, 1861, and ac-


credited to Florida. In this position his services were so well approved that
on April II, 1862, he was made a Brigadier-General. He was at first assigned
to the Army of Northern Virginia as Chief of Engineers, but was soon after
sent to the West. He performed important duties at New Orleans, and on
June 26, 1862, was put in charge of the 3rd district of South Mississippi and
East Louisiana. At the head of the engineer corps he planned and constructed
the defences of Vicksburg, where he resisted the naval attack of the summer
of 1862; was in chief command in December, 1862, and repu'sed the attack of
General Sherman; and during the campaign of May, 1863, and the siege of
Vicksburg, commanded with great distinction a division composed of the bri-
gades of Shoup, Baldwin and Vaughn. More than any other Confederate
General he was identified with the romantic story of the famous stronghold
of the great river, the loss of which doomed the cause for which he fought. On
November 4 1862, he. had been promoted to Major-General. After his ex-
change he continued to serve the Confederacy as chief of engineers until the
close of the war, his last service being at Mobile, Ala. lie did not long sur-
vive the war, dying at Savannah, Ga., July 29, 1866.
Major-General James Patton Anderson.
Captain Co. I Florida 'Infantry, March,' i861; promoted Colonel Ist
Florida Infantry April 6, 1861; Brigadier-General February, 1862; Major-
General 1862.
Maj -Gen. James Patton Anderson was born in Tennessee about 1820. Like
other enterprising Americans he lived in so many different sections of the Union
that it is difficult to decide to which State he really should be assigned in
this record of Confederate Generals. At the opening of the Mexican War he
was living in Mississippi and became Lieutenant-Colonel of Mississippi volun-
teers Although he had not had the advantages of an education at the United
States military acadeniy, the Mexican conflict proved a good school for him in
the military art. The good use he made of .his opportunities in that practical
military training school was afterward evidenced by the skill with which he
managed troops upon the great arena of war from 1861 to 1865. The man
who obtained a good reputation on that great theater of action had to keep
abreast of many illustrious men of the same rank with himself, and that is
what General Anderson did. After the close of the Mexican War General
Anderson lived for a time in Olympia, in what was then Washington Terri-
tory and served as territorial delegate to the national Ilouse of Representa-
"ives in 1855. Before the opening of the Confederate War he was a member
of the secession convention. Feeling, as did most Southern men, that the
South was right, he entered heart and soul into the struggle to maintain
Southern rights and honor As early as December, 186o, before the e had
been any secession, but when everybody felt certain that such action would
be taken, military companies were being formed and drilled. Anderson was
Captain of such a company-the Jefferson Rifles. In April, 186r, he was
Colonel of the Ist Florida Regiment of Infantry, ready to go wherever the
Confederate President might order. Stationed' for some time at Pensacola,
lie was in command of one of the Confederate columns in the fight on Santa


Rosa Island October, 1861. Early in 1862 he was promoted to Brigadier-
General, his command having been transferred to Corinth. Miss. At the bat-
tle of Shiloh his brigade was composed of the l7th Louisiana, the Louisiana
Guard Response Battalion, the Florida Battalion (Ist Regiment) under Maj.
T. A. McDonell, 9th Texas, 20th Louisiana and a company of the Washington
Artillery. Of his service General Bragg said: "Brig.-Gen. Patton Anderson
was among the foremost where the fighting was hardest and never failed to.
overcome whatever resistance was opposed to him. With a brigade composed
almost entirely of raw troops his personal gallantry and soldierly bearing sup-
plied the place of instruction and discipline." At Perryville he commanded
a division of Hardee's corps, and was in charge of the extreme right. At Mur-
freesborough he commanded Walthall's brigade of Withers' division, Polk's
corps. His participation in the magnificent right wheel of the army was in-
ferior o that of none of the general officers who won fame on that day. It
was his brigade which was ordered to take three batteries "at any cost," and
succeeded under the lead of "its cool. steadfast and skillful commander."
Subsequently he commanded Chahner's brigade and, duringSeptember 18 and
19, was in command of Hindman's division, in the Chickamauga campaign.
He was mentioned by General Longstreet as distinguished for conduct and
ability. He commanded the same division at Missionary Ridge. On Feb-
ruary 17, 1864, he was promoted to Major-General and was assigned to com-
mand of the district of Florida. After serving five months in that capacity
he was ordered to report to General Hood at Atlanta, Ga., in July, 1864, and
on his arrival was assigned to his old division, which he commanded in the
battle of Ezra Church, during the siege and until wounded in the battle of
Jonesboro, which compelled him to leave the field, resulting in his absence.
from the ,army until March, 1865. Then, much against the advice and judg-
ment of his physicians, he returned to the army in North Carolina and was
assigned to command of Taliafero's division, Rhctt's and Elliott's brigades
from Charleston, and was with it when it surrendered at Greensboro, N. C.
After the close of hostilities he returned to Tennessee and died at Memphis
in 1873.

Brigadier-General James McQueen McIntosh.
Appointed Colonel 1861; promoted Brigadier-General 1861.
James McQueen Mclntosh, appointed cadet at large from Florida to
West Point, July I, 1845, graduated forty-third in his class July I, 1849, and
appointed brevet 2nd Lieutenant of the Ist Infantry; transferred to the 8th
Infantry February II, 1851; promoted to 2nd Lieutenant May 15, 1851;
promoted 1st Lieutenant to Ist Cavalry March 3, 1855; promoted Captain
January, 1857; resigned May 7, 1861, and offered his services to the Confed-
erate Army. 1861, and was killed at Pea Ridge, Arkansas, March 7, 1862.
Brigadier-General Joseph Finnagan.
Appointed Brigadier-General April 5, 1862.
Brig.-Gen. Joseph Finnegan, a prominent lawyer and statesman in Florida
before the war, was early in 1861 placed by Governor Milton at the head of


military affairs in the State He was commissioned Brigadier-General on
April 5, 1861, and from the 8th of that month until the battle of Olustee
commanded the Department or District of Middle and East Florida. The
coast of Florida was, from the beginning of the war, at the mercy of the Fed-
eral fleet, and within the limits of the State were only a few scattered Con-
federate troops. Early in 1864, when it had been found that Charleston was
too strong for the Federal army and fleet combined, General Gilmore, who
commanded the Department of the South, decided to make an effort to over-
run Florida and annex it to the Union. It was considered desirable by the
United States authorities that some of the Southern States should be brought
so completely under the control of the Union Army as to enable such of the
inhabitants, white and black as might desire to do so, to form what they called
" oyal" State governments and be readni'tted to the Union. Florida seemed
to offer good prospect of success in such an undertaking. An army under
Gen. Truman. Seymour and the fleet of Admiral Dahlgren attempted the task
of subduing Florida, and General Finnegan found himself in a dangerous po i-
tion, demanding skillful generalship and courageous firmness. So well did he
perform his part that a signal victory was obtained at Olustee and the Federal
enterprise entirely defeated. He was soon succeeded by General Gardner as
commander of the district of Middle and Western Florida, and was sent to
Virginia in May at the head of a Florida brigade, with which Perry's old bri-
gade was consolidated. At the second battle of Cold Harbor General Finne-
gan and his Florida brigade had a good opportunity for distinction, and made
memorable use of the occasion to the credit of themselves and their State.
This was the memorable June 3, when Grant's charging columns broke through
a weak point in Breckinridge's line. Immediately Finnegan's brigade rushed
into the breach and in a desperate fight drove back the assailants with heavy
loss to Hancock's troops. General Finnegan served from that time with the
Army of Northern Virginia until March 20, 1856, when he was again assigned
to duty in Florida. After the war he returned to the profession of law. On
October 29, 1885, he died at Sanford, Fla.

Brigadler-General Edward Aylesworth Perry.
," Captain Co. A, 2nd Florida Infantry, April, 1861; promoted Colonel 2nd
Florida Infantry May o1, 1862; Brigadier-General August 28, 1862.
ABrig.-Gen. Edward Aylesworth Perry was born in Richmond, Berkshire
county, Mass., March 15, 1833. He entered Yale college, but before.the com-
pletion of his course, removed to Alabama where he studied law. After ad-
mission to the bar, in 1857 he moved to Pensacola, Fla., where he began the
practice of his chosen profession. He fully shared the sentiments of the peo-
ple of his adopted State, and when the Civil War commenced he raised a com-
pany, of which he was elected Captain. His command became a part of the
2nd Florida Regiment, of which Captain Perry became Colonel in May, 1862.
The Regiment was sent to Virginia and was attached to the division of Gen.
James Longstreet. Colonel Perry commanded the regiment at. Seven Pines
and in the Seven Days' battles around Richmond, and from the first the regi-
ment and its commander were conspicuous for valor and efficiency. At Fra-


zier's Farm he was severely wounded. Gen. Longstreet mentions h'm among
others as distinguished for gallantry and skill. He was commissioned Briga-
dier-General on August 28, 1862, and upon his recovery put in command of
the'newly organized Florida brigade, which he led at Chancellorsville. In the
battle of Gettysburg Perry's brigade, commanded by Col. David Lang,(Gen-
eral Perry was in the hospital severely ill with typhoid fever), with
Wright's and Wilcox's, pressed. close up to the Federal lines and at one time
broke through; but for lack of support had to be withdrawn from the ad-
vanced position. It is claimed by Perry's brigade that its losses at Gettys-
burg were heavier than those of any other brigade of the Confederate Army.
In the battle of the Wilderness General Perry was a second time severely
wounded. After the close of the war he returned to the practice of law in the
city of Pensacola. During the gloomy period of reconstruction he remained
true to the interests of the people of Florida. The result of the war had not
changed his views of the constitutional rights of the States, and not even by
silence did he give seeming approval to the corrupt methods of usurpations of
that epoch. He took an active interest in political affairs, and in 1884 he was
elected Governor of Florida on the Democratic ticket. This office he had
held for four years, and within a year after the expiration of his term he died,
October 15, 1889.

Brigadier-General William S. Walker.
A-iAppoinied -Captain 1861; Colonel 1862; promoted Brigadier General
October 80, 1862.
Brig-Gen. William Stephen Walker, born in Pennsylvania, was appointed
First Lieutenant ot Infantry U. S. A. Feb.27, 1847, from Mississippi, April
I, 1807; he was transferred to the Voltigeurs Regimont of which he became
Adjutant. The regiment was disbanded Aug. 81, 1848, and he left the service
a Brevet Captain for gallant and meritorias service at Chapultopce in tilh
war with Mexico. On March 81, 1856 hli was appointed from the districtt of
Columbnia, a Captain in tho famous 1st U. 8. Cavalry from which lie rosigntd
May 1, 1861 landi Ifelltored the CoIfed(rato service ant Captain of Infantry. In
1862 he was commissioned Colonel, and on October 22, in command at Poco-
taligo, S. C., he defeated a Union force that attempted to seize the Charleston
and Savannah railroad. Eight days later he was promoted to Brigadier-
General, and during the balance of the year he was in command of the 3rd
military district of South Carolina from sudden incursions of the enemy. As
the spring of 1864 opened, all the troops that could possibly be spared from
the Department of South Carolina, Georgia and Florida were sent to the armies
in Virginia and Georgia. On April 29, 1864, General Walker was ordered to
Kinston, N, C.. to take command of that post, and soon afterward he was
called by Beauregard to assist in the defense of Petersburg, at that time ser-
iously threatened by Butler's advance. General Walker reached the army
concentrated by Beauregard in time to share in the attack upon Butler. Dur-
ing a fight on May 20 he accidentally rode into the enemy's lines and when
called upon to surrender refused and, was fired upon. His horse was killed
and he himself so severely wounded in the foot that amputation became nec-
essary. He remained a prisoner of war until exchanged in the fall, when on
October 29 he was placed in command at Weldon. He was commanding in


North Carolina when the war ended General Walker removed to Georgia
after the war and in 1898 was a citizen of Atlanta.
Brigadier-General William G. M. Davis.
Colonel Ist Florida Cavalry March, 1861; promoted Brigadier-General
November 4, 1862.
Brig.-Gen. W. G. M. Davis was before the war a lawyer in Florida, widely
known as a gentleman of great legal ability and high rank in his profession.
Forsaking his practice in 1861, he raised a regiment and was on January 1,
1862, commissioned Colonel of the Ist Florida Cavalry and put in command
of the provisional forces of East Florida. The Federals had already seized
Fernandina, Jacksonville and other places along the coast. The chief busi-
ness of Colonel Davis' regiment was to watch the movements of the enemy
carefully, and as far as possible to prevent raiding or scouting parties of the
Federal from penetrating into the interior. Gov. John Milton was very
much opposed to the raising of cavalry commands for the defense of Florida,
insisting that nothing but artillery and infantry were needed for the defense
of the State. The executive council of the State passed a resolution request-
ing the Governor to correspond with the President as to the necessity of the
regiment being converted into an infantry regiment and being kept in the State
for its defense. On March 25, 1862, Colonel Davis and his regiment were
ordered to report to Gen. Albert Sidney Johnson and *ere assigned to East
Tennessee, where they were kept busy watching the movements of the enemy,
scouting and overaiving the disaffected in that part of the Confederacy. On
November 4, 1862, he was commissioned Brigadier-General and was placed in
command of the Department of East Tennessee. His brigade embraced the
ist Florida Cavalry, the 6th and 7th Florida Infantry and Martin's Light
Battery. His scene of operation was a wild and difficult mountain region
throughout which were people disaffected toward the Confederacy It was
necessary to control and at the same time to use much discretion in dealing
with them. So the task of a department commander in that section was a
very difficult one. During the time in which he exercised command his de-
partment was quite free from the presence of Federal troops. On May 5,
1862, he resigned his commission and retired from the military service of the
Confederate States.
Brigadier-General Francis A. Shoup.
Appointed Lieutenant of artillery; promoted Major of artillery October
1861; promoted Brigadier-General September 12, 1862.
Brig.-Gen. Francis A. Shoup was born at Laurel, Franklin county, Ind.,
March 22, 1864. He was appointed a cadet at West Point from Indiana,
and was graduated in 1855 as brevet 2nd Lieutenant of artillery. He served
in garrison at Key West and Fort Moultrie; was commissioned 2nd Lieuten-
ant December 6, 1855, and served against the Seminoles in Florida from 1856
to 1858. He resigned in 186o and beginning the study of law was admitted to
the bar at St. Augustine, Fla., early in x861. In the war of 1861-65 he es-
poused heartily the cause of the South and, early in the struggle under the


order of the Governor of Florida, he erected a battery at Fernandina. lie
was appointed a Lieutenant of artillery in the Confederate Army and was or-
dered to report to General Ilardee in the trans-Mississippi Department. In
October, 1861, he was conunissioned Major of artillery and was in command
of a battalion of 12 guns with the Arkansas troops in Kentucky. General
Hardee, in assuming command of the Army of Central Kentucky, made him
chief of artillery, in which capacity he served at the battle of Shiloh. He it
was who massed the artillery against the position occupied by the connmand
of Prentiss on the memorable first day at Shiloh, thus becoming an important
factor in the capture of that fine body of Union troops. Under Beauregard
he held the important post of inspector of artillery. He was sent with Hind-
man to Arkansas; was his chief of artillery and as such participated in the
battle of Prairie Grove. On September 12, 1862, he was promoted to Briga-
dier-General; and in April, 1863, he was ordered to Mobile, Ala., as chief of
artillery for General Buckner. At Vicksburg he commanded a Louisiana
brigade and was captured upon the fall of that city. After being exchanged
he served as chief of artillery to Joseph E. Johnston and gained the hearty
commendation of his commander and the esteem of the soldiers. It was in a
great measure due to his skillful management of the artillery that not a gun
was lost n the several retreats of the Army of Tennessee from Dalton to At-
lanta in 1864. The works at the Chattahoochee, which Sherman declared were
the best he had ever seen, were constructed under his supervision. Upon the re-
moval of Johnston, Gen. Hood made Shoup his chief of staff After the fall of
Atlanta he was relieved at his'own request. lHe was the author of a pamphlet
urging the enlistment of negro troops, which was submitted to the Confederate
Congress. The year. after the close of the war he was elected to the chair of
applied mathematics in the University of Miississippi. Here he studied for
the ministry and was admitted to orders in the Episcopal church, of which
he had become a member while the Confederate A'rmy was in camp at Dalton
April, 1864. IHe officiated as rector at Waterford. N, Y., Nashville, Tenn.,
and New Orleans, La.; also filled the chair of metaphysics in the University
of the South, at Sewannce, Tenn lie is author of a work on Infantry Tac-
tics"; while in Atlanta, in 1864, prepared a text-book on 'Artillery Division
Drill," and in 1874 he published the Elements of Algebra."
Brigadier-General Jesse Johnson Finley.
Captain Co. D, 6th Florida Infantry March, 1862; promoted Colonel,
April 14, 1862; Brigadier-General November 16, 1863.
Brig.-Gen. Jesse Johnson Finley was born in Wilson county, Tenn., on
November 18, 1812. ie was educated at Lebanon and began the study of
law. But about that time the Seminole War was begun and young Finley,
having recruited a company of mounted volunteers, served in the army as
Captain. Returning home in 1838 he was admitted to the bar. In 1840 he
moved to Mississippi county, Ark. The young lawyer, who seems to have
been a born leader of men, at once rose to prominence and was elected to the
State Senate in 1841. The following year he resigned this position and, going
to Memphis, Tenn., began the practice of law. He was elected Mayor of that


city in 1845. In 1846 he removed to Marianna, Fla. Here he soon became
prominent and, in 185o, was elected to the State Senate. In 1852 he was
a presidential elector on the Whig ticket, and in 1861 he was made judge of the
Confederate court. In March, 1862, he resigned this post of honor and entered
the army as a private; was soon promoted to a captaincy, and on April 14,
1862, was commissioned as Colonel of the 6th Florida Regiment. lie was on
duty in East Tennessee in Davis' brigade, Heth's division, Kirby Smith's
department; took part in the Kentucky campaign and, after the return to
Knoxville, served as president of the court-nmartial for the department until
ordered to Tullahoma. IIe conunanded h s regiment in the battle of Chicka-
mauga with distinction. On November I6, 1863, lie was coninissioned Briga-
dier-General and assigned to connmand of he Florida Infantry in the Army of
Tennessee, united in a brigade of Bate's division, Ilardee's corps. lie com-
manded this gallant brigade at.Missionary Ridge, and rendered distinguished
service with the rear guard under General Bate. In the May campaign of
1864 he took part until at the battle of Resaca lie was severely wounded,
causing his disability until after Johnston's arny had reached Atlanta. At
Jonesboro, November 15, 1864, in an assualt upon the enemy's lines he was
again seriously wounded by a fragment of shell, which also killed his horse.
He declined to be sent to the rear to take the train until all his wounded men
were embarked and narrowly escaped capture, being saved through the faith-
fulness of a driver wvho took himi in a conullissay wagon after the last train
had left lie was unfit for duty during the subsequent campaign of General
Hood: Soon after the army was ordered to North Carolina, his wound being
partially healed, he started to rejoin his brigade; but his progress being inter-
fered with by the Federal movements, he reported to General Cobb at Colun-
bus, and was assigned to duty When Wilson's Federal troops entered Colun-
bus he made his escape with General Toombs to Eufaula. and soon afterward
hostilities ceased. General Finley then returned to Florida and lived for a
time in Lake City. In 1875 he removed to Jacksonville. IHe served in Con-
gress from 1875 to 1879. In 1879 he was again elected but the seat was con-
tested and given to his opponent. In 1887 he was appointed by Governor
Perry to fill a vacancy in the United States Senate until an election could be
held. Since the expiration of that service lie has lived quietly at his Florida

Brigadier-General William Miller.
Major 1862; promoted Colonel Ist Florida Infant y July, 1862; Briga-
dier-General August 2, 1864.
Brig.-Gen. William Miller-Before and after the secession of Florida
there was great mustering of the State troops and busy preparations were
everywhere made for the coming struggle, wh ch all feared alight come, though
many hoped that it would be avoided Among those who forsook the occu-
pations of peace to take part in defense of State sovereignty was Win. Miller,
one of the most gallant of Florida's soldiers. He was in command of a bat-
talion, which was consolidated with McDonell's battalion of the 1st Regiment
in the operations cuhninating in the battle of Perryville, Ky. In the Ken-


:ucky campaign the Ist Reg'ment from Florida was in the brigade of Gen.
John C. Brown and the division of Gen. J. Patton Anderson. In the battle of
Perryville General Brown was wounded and Colonel Miller led the brigade
through the rest of the fight. At Murfreesborough this regiment was in the
brigade of Gen. William Preston and the division of Gen. John C. Brecken-
ridge. In the magnificent but disastrous charge of that division on January
2, 1863, the gallant Miller, commanding the Ist and 3rd Florida consolidated.
was wounded. General Preston in his report says: "Colonel Miller, of the
Ist and 3rd Florida, was wounded on Friday while bravely leading his regi-
ment, which lie withdrew, 'retaining the command notwithstanding his
wounds." While being healed of his injury Colonel Miller was placed in charge
of the Confederate conscript bureau in Southern Florida and Alabama. On
August 2, 1864, he was commissioned Brigadier-General, and on September
8 was ordered to take immediate command of the reserve forces of the State
of Florida, to complete their organization and place them at once in service.
On September 29, in addition to his other duties, General Miller was assigned
to the command of the District of Florida, where he took an active part in the
events of that-period and until the close of the war.

Brigadier-General Robert Bullock.
Captain Co. G, 7th Florida Infantry, March, 1862; promoted Lieutenant-
Colonel April 11, 1862; Colonel June 2, 1863; Brigadier-General 1865.
Gen Robert Bullock was one of the influential men of Florida before the
war. When his State seceded he gave his hearty support to her decision;
organized a company in Marion county and, when the 7th Florida was organ-
ized, he was made Lieutenant-Colonel. In 1862 this regiment served in East
Tennessee in the-brigade of Gen. W. D. M. Davis The department at that
time was commanded by Gen. E. Kirby Smith. At the time of the battle of
Murfreesboro this brigade was still in Smith's department, and on June 2
Lieutenant-Colonel Bullock was commissioned Colonel. When all available
Confederate commands were being concentrated by Bragg to meet the ad-
vancing army of Rosecrans, the 7th Florida was one of the regiments assigned
to Trigg's brigade of the division at Chickamauga and bear strong testimony
to the desperate nature of the fighting there. At the battle of Missionary
Ridge the 7th Florida fought in the brigade of General Finley and the divis-
ion of General Bate. In this brigade and division it continued to serve
throughout the Atlanta campaign, under Colonel Bullock, who-had already
distinguished himself as a cool and gallant commander. Some of the hardest
fighting of the Atlanta campaign was done by this division, and the 7th Florida
acted a gallant part in all. During the campaign into Tennessee Colonel Bul-
lock led Finley's brigade and was one of the gallant participants in the terrible
battle of Franklin.
Maj.-Gen. William Bate, in his official report of the Tennessee campaign,
pays a high compliment to Colonel Bullock. He says: "T. B. Smith, com-
manding Tyler's brigade, and Col. Robert Bullock, commanding Finley's,
bore themselves with heroic courage both through good and evil fortune, al-
ways executing orders with zeal and alacrity and bearing themselves in the


face of the enemy as became reputations which each had theretofore bravely
won. The latter was severely wounded near Murfreesboro, and was succeeded
by Major Lash, whose coolness and gallantry were marked." Colonel Bullock
came out of the Tennessee campaign with the temporary rank of Brigadier-
General; he was afterward confirmed and commissioned as Brigadier-General.
Brigadier-General Theodore W. Brevard.
Captain Co. D, 2nd Florida Infantry; appointed Major 1862; promoted
Lieutenant-Colonel, Ist Florida Battalion, December, 1863; Colonel IIth
Florida Regiment, June, 1864; Brigadier-General March 22, 1865. gW
After the organization, May Io, 1862 Captain Brevard returned to Flor-
ida, served for a time as inspector and mustering officer, but was shortly ap-
pointed Major and commissioned to raise a battalion This was first a cav-
alry command, known as Brevard's Partisans Rangers, and consisted of four
companies. With this command Major Brevard served in Florida until May,
1864. In the skirmish that occurred in the suburbs of Jacksonville, 1863,
Major Brevard was commended for gallant conduct by General Finley. In
December, 1863, the Ist battallion, Major Brevard, was increased to five com-
panies and Major Brevard promoted to Lieutenant-Colonel. On February 20,
1864, the battalion took part in the battle of Olustee, doing gallant service.
In obedience to orders from the War Department at Richmond Finnegan's
b igade, of which the Ist battallion formed a part, left for Virginia May 17,
arriving at Richmond on May 25, 1864. On May 28 they were joined by the
remnant of Perry's brigade and, under the command of General Finnegan,
took part in the second battle of Cold Harbor. On June 8 the several bat-
talions were formed into regiments and in August, 1864, Lieutenant-Co!onel
Brevard was promoted Colonel of the IIth Florida, which regiment he com-
manded until the battle of Sailor's Creek, April 6, 1865, where he and his
entire command were captured. On March 22, 1865, Co!onel Brevard was
commissioned Brigadier-General, but General Lee's army surrendered and the
war ended before his commission could reach him. After the close of the war
Colonel Brevard returned to Ta!!ahassee, where he resumed the practice of
his profession. General Brevard died in Tallahassee.

Colonel David Lang.
Captain Co. C, 8th Florida Infantry. May 15, 1862; promoted Colonel
September 17 1862.
Col. David Lang, of the 8th Florida Infantry, was born in Camden county,
Ga., in 1838, and educated at the Georgia Military Institute, at Marietta,
where he graduated in 1857. As a young man he gave much attention to civil
engineering and, soon after his graduation, came to Florida and was elected
surveyor of Suwannee county. When the organization of troops for the Con-
federate States service began he enlisted as a private in Co. II, Ist Florida
Infantry, and was-appointed Ist Sergeant. With the Ist Regiment he served
one year at Pensacola, under Col. Patton Anderson, and at the expiration of
his enlistnient was mustered out at Montgomery, Ala., April 3, 1862. Return-
ing to Florida Sergeant LanII raised a company, of which he was elected Cap-

zation of the regiment it was ordered to Virginia, and reached-Richmond early
in July At the second battle of Manassas. August 29, 1862, Captain Lang
found opportunity for distinction; on September 17, 1862, he was engaged in
the battle of Sharpsburg. In this fight he was severely wounded in the h'nuld-
er, but was on duty again before the battle of Fredericksburg, Deccunber t
to 15, 1862, in which he commanded his regiment, attracting general and fav-
orable comment by the gallantry with which he and his men held at bay the
enemy in their attempt to cross the Rappahannock River. His position was
exposed to a terrific fire of artillery and musketry, and he was again wounded.
Captain Lang was promoted Colonel, to date from the battle of Sharpsburg.
September 17, 1862. IHe commanded the regiment at Chancellorsville and
then, on account of the illness of General Perry, took command of the Florida
brigade and led it with marked ability and bravery through the Pennsylvania
campaign, the great battle of Gettysburg and the retreat to Virginia; continu-
ing in command until the Bristow campaign, October 22, 1863, when General
Perry was again on duty. In the battle of the Wilderness May 6, 1864, Gen-
eral Perry was wounded and disabled, and Colonel Lang resumed command of
the brigade and it was under his orders during the tremendous conflicts that
followed at Spottsylvania Court House, South Anna River and until a few
days before the second Cold Harbor. On May 28, 1864, Perry's brigade was
attached to General Finnegan's brigade, with Gen Joseph Finnegan in com-
mand, and Colonel Lang again took command of his regiment, which he held
during the seige of Petersburg and until March 20, 1865, when General Finne-
gan was transferred to Florida, and General Lang resumed the command of
the Florida brigade, o hold it until the surrender at Appomattox. After his
return to Florida Colonel Lang resided successively in Suwannee county,
Madison county and at Cedar Keys until 1885, when he was appointed Adju-
tant-General of the State, which position he held until 1893. From 1893 till
1901 he was Private Secretary under Governors Mitchell and Bloxham.
John Day Perkins.
John Day Perkins was born in Tallahassee, Florida, November 15, 1843,
his parents being Thomas J. and Amelia M. Perkins. At the outbreak of the
Civil War, in 1861, when a mere boy, he ran away from home in order to join
a company then being organized in Pensacola; but his father, on account of
his extreme youth, brought him back home.
In August of 1861 the Howel Guards, named in honor of Miss Howell, a
sister of Mrs. Jefferson Davis, was organized in Leon county, Florida. John
Day Perkins was then not 18 years of age; his father, impressed by his strong
determinat on to enlist in active service, consented to his joining this com-
pany It was composed of 115 men, and left Tallahassee August 27, i86I,
as an independent volunteer company, going by rail to Monticello, marching
from there to Boston, Ga., and from thence by rail to Richmond, where they
went into camp for wo or three months.
G. W. Parkhill was Captain: John Eppes, Ist Lieutenant, but he resigned

in a few months and R. C. Parkhill was elected to his place; E. L. Hampton,
2nd Lieutenant; Amos Whitehead, 3rd Lieutenant, but he resigned; and
John Day Perkins, Corporal. There were other officers also. At the battle
of Gaines' Mill G. W. Parkhil! was killed and R. C. Parkhill promoted to Cap-
tain. Hampton became Ist Lieutenant. And at Winchester, Va., in 1863,
John Day Perkins was elected as 2nd Lieutenant.
After having remained in camp at Richmond for three months the coin-
pany went to Evansport on the Potomac and took charge of a siege gun,or
ship point battery, remaining there : ntil May, 1862. John Day Perkins was
made Gunner of one of the heavy guns and did all of the shooting with it.
Leaving Evansport, they were ordered to Richmond. Upon reaching Fred-
erick City they were attached to the 5th Alabama battalion, under command
of Roger A. Pryor; here they encountered the enemy, had several engage-
ments. after which they proceeded to Richmond, where they were mustered
into the 2nd Florida Regiment as Co. M, Col. E. A. Perry's brigade, Anderson's
division, Ilill's corps.
R. C. Parkhill was wounded at Frazier s Farm and later resigned. Ilamp-
ton was made Captain and John Day Perkins, Ist Lieutenant.
At GettysburgI lampton was killed and Lieutenant Perkins was made
Captain, having command of the company during the battle. On the second
day's fight at Gettysburg, July 2, Captain Perkins, while leading in a charge,
was wounded, losing his left leg and thumb; he fell on the battle field, re-
maining there through the entire battle, beneath the heaviest fire of both the
enemy and his own men; he was left on the field for two days without food or
water, exposed to the burning -rays of the July sun, being compelled to ban-
dage his shattered limb with mud and muck to avoid bleeding to death; he
was then taken prisoner and removed to the Federal prison at Fort McHenry,
where he was confined for nine months and then allowed to return home, be-
ing unexchanged. The Federal physicians, after amputating his leg, told
hint he could not live;. shortly thereafter, while laying on his cot, he heard
several Northern ladies visiting through the Fort ask, "Where is that little
Jonnie Reb Captain?" Somewhat indignant, but aroused by pride and love
for his cause, he raised himself up and said-"IHere he is." Approaching his
bed from curiosity but seeing a boy of but 20, they were touched with sym-
pathy and said, "Oh-he is nothing but a boy. Poor boy, so far from home,"
and then turned away.
After his return home he made application for field service but was re-
jected because of the loss of his leg; but was assigned as Enrolling Officer in
Conscript Camp at Quincy, Florida, June 14, 1864. IHe was then ordered to
Tallahassee March 2, 1865, being made Post Commander by the Secretary of
War, to relieve Captain Blocher, in which capacity he remained until he close
of the war in 1865.
He was engaged in the battles of Fredericksburg, Frazier's Farm, Chan-
cellorsville, Mannassas, all of the seven days' fighting around Richmond,
Gettysburg and other hard fought battles.
It has been, said by his associates in service and comrades in battle that


no truer patriot, more gallant Southerner or braver soldier ever lived than
John Day Perkins.

Captain Augustus O. MacDonell.
Captain Augustus 0. MacDonell, a prominent railroad official of Jack-
sonville, is a veteran of the 1st Florida Infantry and of the Army of Ten-
nessee. He was born at Savannah, Ga., April Io, 1839, and was reared in
Early county of that State. AtGainesvillc, Fla., in 186o he became a mem-
ber of the Gainesville Minute Men, a volunteer company, with which he entered
the Confederate service in April 1861, as Company B, Ist Regiment Florida
Infantry. This was the first company organized for the Confederate service
in Florida. Mr. MacDonell served as a private for one year at Pensacola,
and re-enlisting in the spring of 1862, was elected 2nd Lieutenan of Com-
pany K. of the Ist Florida Battallion, organized from those of the Ist Rleg-
iment who remained in the service. In this rank he served at the battle
of Shiloh, April 6-7, 1862, and subsequently was promoted to Ist Lieuten-
ant,.and in the spring of 1863 was advanced to the rank of Captain of his
Company. Among the battles and campaigns in which he participated af-
ter Shiloh, were the siege of Corinth, battle of Farmington, Miss., the trans-
fer to Chattanooga, the march into Kentucky,and battle of Perryville, Oc-
tober 8, 1862, where he was severely wounded, causing his disability for
two months. So many men were lost by the Ist and 3rd Florida that they
were thereafter consolidated as one regimental command. Lieutenant Mac-
Donell was fit for duty again in time for the battle of Murfreesboro, De-
cember 31, 1862, and January 2, 1863, and in this battle he. narrowly es-
caped serious injury, his sword being shattered by a fragment of shell. In
the spring of 1863 he was detached from his command for special service
in the Southeast, returning to his company just after the battle of Chicka-
mauga and Missionary Ridge; he was immediately placed on the firing line
and was actively engaged in the February campaign about Dalton, and the
Atlanta campaign, with its numerous skirmishes on battles of Resaca, Dallas,
Kennesaw Mountain, Pcachtree Creek, and July 22 and 28. Capt. MacDonell
commanded his company with credit through this great 'campaign, one of
the most remarkable in the history w f warfare, until he was captured by the
enemy in the hand-to-halnd light along the entrenched lines southwest of
Atlanta, August 7, 1864. This ended his military record, so far as effective
service is concerned. lie was a prisoner of war at Johnson's Island, Lake
Erie. through the winter of 1864-65, suffering much from cold and insuf-
ficient food, and was held there unti' July 1865.
Capt. MacDonell has been a resident of Florida since the war, and be-
gan his career as a railroad man in. 1871. lie is now Assistant General
Passenger Agent of the Seaboard Air Line Railroad.
