General of the Confederacy by Don Troiani - This print depicts Brigadier John Crawford Vaughn of Roane County, Tennessee in 1863. Vaughn entered the service as a Captain of the 5th Tennessee Infantry in the Mexican War and in 1861 raised the 3rd Tennessee Regiment. He fought at First Manassas and was afterwards commissioned a Brigadier General in September of 1862. Serving in the West he was forced to surrender with his brigade at Vicksburg, Mississippi. After his exchange he commanded mounted troops in Western Virginia and East Tennessee. As Southern fortunes crumbled in 1865 his brigade formed part of the escort of President Jefferson Davis during his flight from pursuing Union forces. After the war he held various political offices until his death in Georgia in 1875.
