Alfred Iverson, Jr. (1829-1911)

Alfred Iverson, Jr. was a brigadier general in the Confederate Army. Lee recommended his promotion and he was put at the head of his brigade. On the first day at Gettysburg, in the midst of the heavy fighting, he lost his nerve when he saw most of his brigade surrender. General Ramseur had to take over Iverson's brigade. Lee then tried to be rid of him and sent him back to Georgia to work in the reserve forces. Iverson returned to the fighting during the Atlanta Campaign at the beginning of 1864, but he was ordered to leave the division. Iverson lived out the rest of his life as a citrus grower in Georgia. The uniform was hand-painted on this photograph.
