Thayer's Note:

a As with other Confederate officers, Cullum's Register omits his war record. According to Bruce S. Allardice, Confederate Colonels: A Biographical Register (University of Missouri Press, 2008), p155, he was chief of heavy artillery in the Department of Mississippi and East Louisiana, was taken prisoner at Vicksburg and paroled, then commanded an artillery brigade at Mobile until the end of the war.
