In the fierce battles of the Civil War, both sides suffered bloody losses. Death did not shy away from men in command positions either. In this article, I would like to pay attention to the Confederate generals who perished on the battlefields of the Civil War. The list of fallen generals of the Confederation contains 73 names. Among them were talented dukes, but hopeless scoundrels who did not have much success on the battlefields. Let's try to remember, at least briefly, how they fought or how they died.
In the first part of the article, we imagined one army commander and three corps commanders who perished during the Civil War. In today's part, we will focus on the generals who fell at the time when they held the functions of division commanders. There are seven names in the list of fallen generals. This list includes Major General William D. Pender, J.E.B Stuart, W.H.T Walker, Robert R. Rhodes, Stephen D. Ramseur, Patrick R. Cleburne, and Brigadier General John Pegram.
In the third part of the article, we will take a close look at the fate of brigadier generals who perished in the fighting of the Civil War for the Confederacy. The total list of fallen brigade commanders contains 62 names. In this section, we will remember the brigadier generals who fell right at the beginning of the war.
In the second block on the fallen generals of the Confederacy, we will recall another 10 brigadier generals who fell on the battlefields of the Civil War.
In the fifth part of our article, we will present brief profiles of the third dozen of brigadier generals who fell on the battlefields of the Civil War.
For the sixth time, we will choose to search for the fate of the fallen generals of the Confederate army. Even in today's part, we will approach the fate of ten fallen generals.
During 1864, it became increasingly clear that the Confederacy had no chance of winning the war. Nevertheless, the Southern army did not give up and fiercely resisted in bloody battles, slowing down the advance of Union troops into the interior of the southern states. Thousands of Southern soldiers and officers perished in these furious clashes. Among them are 11 brigadier generals. We will recall their fate in today's article.
