be met, and was finally made Governor of Grenada.
When the venture fell to pieces, through, as General Walker charges, the policy pursued by the United States and British Governments, General Fry returned to this country and settled in Alabama.
At the breaking out of the war for Southern Independence he was one of the first to offer his sword to the State of his adoption.
He rose successively to the rank of colonel and brigadier-general, and attested nobly his valor and ability.
On the third day of the battle of Gettysburg he led the directing regiment of Wilcox's brigade up those bloody heights, adding lustre to the name of Alabama, and falling desperately wounded.
He commanded subsequently the Confederate forces at Augusta, Ga. Upon the conclusion of the war General Fry went to Cuba, where he was for several years engaged in the tobacco business.
Returning to Alabama, he was appointed superintendent of the public school system.
There his wife died without issue.
