Character description

Isaac R. Trimble (1802-1888): Civil War general (Confederate). A West Pointer from the class of 1822, but with limited field experience, he was nonetheless made a colonel and then a brigadier in 1861. As a general in Jackson's corps, he was wounded at Second Bull Run and was not able to return to the field for many months. Promoted Major General in the interim, he went to Gettysburg with Lee despite not having a command. When Major General Pender was mortally wounded, Lee gave Trimble command of his division during Pickett's Charge. Trimble lost a leg and was captured in the fighting and did not serve in the field again. After the war, he worked as a consulting engineer.
