General Braxton Bragg, C.S.A. (1817-1876)

Bragg, a 1837 graduate of West Point, served in the Seminole and Mexican wars and rose to lieutenant colonel. In 1856, he resigned from the army and became a sugar planter in Louisiana. In 1861, he was commissioned a brigadier general in the Confederate army and commanded the Pensacola-Mobile area. He became a major general and commanded the 2nd Corps under Johnston at the Battle of Shiloh and at Corinth. He was again promoted to full general and commanded the Army of Tennessee which invaded Kentucky but was ultimately forced back. General Rosecrans defeated him at Chattanooga. Bragg was victorious in Chickamauga but failed to followup which led to his being relieved of his command. Bragg was an unpopular quarrelsome man who despite being a talented organizer committed many blunders in his military operations.
