Alexander R. Lawton (1818-1896)
Alexander Robert Lawton was a brigadier general in the Confederate Army. He graduated from Harvard Law School in 1842 and practiced in Georgia. Before his state left the Union he seized Fort Pulaski under the governor's orders. He was appointed brigadier general in April 1861. Much to his chagrin he was made quartermaster general in 1863. He later became president of the American Bar Association and was U.S. minister to Austro-Hungarian Empire (1887).
