Civil War Confederate Army Officer. The son of Alabama Senator and Governor Arthur Pendleton Bagby, he graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1852. After brief service in New York and Texas, he resigned from the army in 1853 to study and practice law. At the beginning of the Civil War, he was appointed Major of the 7th Texas Mounted Volunteers and rose to full Colonel in that unit by November of 1862. He participated in the Battles of Galveston, Berwick Bay, Fordoche, Bayou Bourbeau, Mansfield, and Pleasant Hill. His service in New Mexico, Texas, and Louisiana led to his assignment as Brigadier General by General Edmund Kirby-Smith in April of 1864 (although the appointment was never submitted to the Confederate Congress, which meant his actual offical rank was still Colonel). In early 1865, he was given permanent command of a cavalry division; and on May 16, 1865 General Kirby Smith promoted him to the rank of major general; but by that time the Confederacy had dissolved. After the war, he settled in Victoria and Hallettsville, Texas where he was a journalist and practiced law. (bio by: Thomas Fisher)
