Biography: 

In The Reivers this is the "Yankee general" whom the party of Confederate cavalrymen that included Theophilius McCaslin "almost captured" when they rode "at a gallop into the lobby" of the Gayoso Hotel in Memphis (94). Both he and the event may be apocryphal, though to the Priest family, Lucius says, it is all "historical fact" (94).
