John S. Williams (1818-1898)

John Stuart Williams was a brigadier general in the Confederate Army and a U.S. senator from Kentucky. Williams was a captain in the Mexican War and was afterward nicknamed "Cerro Gordo" because of a controversy in that battle. Although he was against secession, the Kentuckian reluctantly joined the Confederacy and was appointed brigadier general in April, 1862. After the war he was elected as a Democrat to the Senate (1879-85).
