Jefferson Columbus Davis (1828-1879)

As a brigadier-general in the Union Army, Jefferson C. Davis had a brilliant future. But Davis is more remembered for a crime than for his military record. In 1862, he cold-bloodedly murdered his commanding officer, General William Nelson. Davis went wholly unpunished and was restored to duty and served for the rest of his life. He never voiced any regret for killing Nelson.
