Thayer's Note:

a As with other Confederate officers, Cullum's Register omits his war record: he was one of the defenders of Fort Walker against the naval attack on Port Royal (for which see George R. Clark et al., A Short History of the United States Navy, pp244‑251); and according to the Southern Historical Society Papers the highest rank he achieved was in 1865, as Colonel, commanding Huger's Battalion of Artillery, 1st Artillery Corps, Army of Northern Virginia.
