Character description

Lafayette McLaws (1821-1897): Confederate Civil War general. A West Pointer of the class of 1842, he had fought in the Mexican War. He took command of a Georgia regiment in June 1861, and was made Brigadier later that year. He was promoted to Major General in 1862, and led a division in Longstreet's Corps in 1862 and 1863. He quarreled with Longstreet and was relieved by that officer, but a court-martial acquitted him. He held commands in Georgia toward the end of the war. He held a variety of relatively unimportant jobs after the war.
