Civil War Confederate Brigadier General. When the Civil War began, he was appointed Brigadier General in the provisional Army of the State of Tennessee. He assisted in the organization of troops and his brigade was assigned to duty at Memphis. As area commander, he repelled bands of Unionists that threatened the city. At Knoxville, he proclaimed martial law to the city and the surrounding country which restored civil authority. In 1862, his brigade was part of the forces which had victories against Union Corps in the Kentucky campaigne. On February 1, 1863, General Carroll resigned his commission in the Confederate Army. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
