(1829-1911) Born in Augusta, Georgia, he graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in 1853. Boggs resigned his U.S. Army commission as 1st lieutenant of ordnance in February of 1861, and was immediately appointed captain and ordnance officer and assigned to the command of General P.G.T. Beauregard at Charleston, S.C. He was later transferred to Pensacola, Florida, where he was assigned to the staff of General Braxton Bragg with duties as chief of engineers and artillery. He served as chief engineer of the state of Georgia for most of 1862 being promoted to rank of brigadier general on November 4th of that same year. His next assignment was that of chief of staff of General E. Kirby Smith who he accompanied to the Trans-Mississippi Department where he served for the remainder of the War Between the States. After the war General Boggs resided in St. Louis, Missouri, where he was engaged as a civil engineer. He later taught mechanics from 1875-81 at Virginia Polytechnic Institute. Upon his retirement he settled in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where he spent his last years writing his military memoirs which were a very valuable documentation of operations in the Trans-Mississippi theater of the war. The general is buried in Salem Cemetery, in Winston-Salem.

Document Signed: 7 1/2 x 2 3/4, imprinted bank check filled out in ink. St. Louis, Mo., March 20, 1872. Central Savings Bank, No. 312 North Third Street. Made payable in the amount of Fifty Dollars.
