Braxton Bragg (March 22, 1817 – September 27, 1876) was a career United States Army officer, and then a General in the Confederate States Army, where he served as a principal commander in the Western Theater of the American Civil War.

Prior to the Civil War, Bragg had fought the Seminole, and served in the Mexican-American War. After some years as a planter, Bragg became a Brigadier General of the C.S. Army. His record of service in the West was primarily a string of defeats. His invasion of Kentucky, for example, ultimately failed as he did not press his advantage. He was finally pulled from the field in 1864, and become Jefferson Davis' military advisor.

Bragg's death came abruptly in 1876, when he fell over dead while walking down the street.

Braxton Bragg in Southern Victory[]

In 1862, Braxton Bragg led a Confederate army into Kentucky early in the War of Secession, conquering the state and joining it into the Confederate States.[1] When Kentucky fell to the U.S., a statue of Bragg was promptly destroyed, and Kentucky returned to the U.S.[2]
