Quick Reference

(1821–97) Confederate army officer, born in Augusta, Georgia. He achieved his greatest success at Fredericksburg (1862) when his division repulsed multiple frontal assaults by the Army of the Potomac. The division served in most of the major campaigns of the Army of Northern Virginia from 1862 to 1863, achieving a solid combat record, but McLaws was relieved of command and charged with neglect of duty when the division attack at Knoxville was repulsed (1863). He was transferred out of the eastern theater and spent the remainder of the war in the south, participating in the Savannah and Carolinas campaigns (1864–65).
