Zollicoffer's Brigade

Recommended Posts

As we all know, Felix Zollicoffer was killed (as result of an odd blunder) at Battle of Mill Springs in January 1862. However, his Brigade lived on to fight again... at the Battle of Shiloh. Who commanded Zollicoffer's Brigade at Shiloh?

Well done, Rbn3!

Because General Breckinridge did not write a comprehensive Shiloh after-action report (and neither did commanders of the units assigned to the Reserve Corps) the contribution of this Confederate organization tends to be overshadowed, due to recognition won (and recorded) by units belonging to Hardee, Polk and Bragg. And one of the Regimental commanders in Zollicoffer's Brigade suffered a particularly strong dose of misfortune at Shiloh, that I only encountered by researching this quiz question [Colonel Joel Battle].

All the best
