Felix K. Zollicoffer (1812-1862)

Felix Kirk Zollicoffer was a U.S. representative from Tennessee and a brigadier general in the Confederate Army. He was elected as a Whig to three terms in Congress (1853-58). When the Civil War broke out Zollicoffer declined the position of major general in command of all the Tennessee troops, but agreed to be appointed brigadier general. Zollicoffer was killed under unusual circumstances at Logan Cross Roads by Union Colonel Speed S. Fry. Confronted with Zollicoffer's troops, Fry shouted at them that they were "dastards" and defied them to come forward. A Confederate rode up and shot Fry's horse. Fry shot and killed the stranger, who was revealed to be Zollicofer.
