General officers of the Confederate Army: a full roster compiled from the official records

The Confederate titles below derive authority through verification by General Marcus J. Wright, for many years in charge of Confederate records at the United States War Department, Washington. Some ranks appropriate to high commands, and fully justified, were never legally confirmed. In such cases, as those of Joseph Wheeler and John B. Gordon, General Wright has followed the strictest interpretation of the Confederate records below. As for the body of this History it has been thought best to employ the titles most commonly used, and found in the popular reference works. The highest rank attained is given in every case together with the date of the commission conferring such rank.

    Generals, provisional army (with temporary rank)

  • Hood, John B., July 18, 1864.

    Major-General, for service with volunteer troops (with temporary rank)

  • Gilmer, J. F., Aug. 25, 1863.
