Trivia Question


Recommended Posts


I was born in Virginia in 1827. Six of my brothers served with the Confederate Army. I graduated from West Point in 1850 and served with the 7th Infantry before the war. When war broke out, I served on the staff of PGT Beauregard and Joseph Johnston before being reassigned to serve under Earl Van Dorn. I served until October 1864 when I was captured during Sterling Price's expedition. After the war, I moved to Texas and was an engineer and politician. One grandson served in the US government in an important position, while another grandson was mayor of the city I had served as mayor and was mayor during a tragic event.

Who am I?
Who were my two grandsons?
What was the tragic event my grandson was mayor during?
