Killed in action at Pine Mountain, Georgia in 1864 during the Atlanta campaign

1861 M.B. Brady imprint


(1806-64) Known as the "Bishop Militant," he graduated in the West Point class of 1827. Soon after he entered the Episcopal ministry, and later became Missionary Bishop of the Southwest. Exchanging his clerical vestments for an army uniform upon the outbreak of the War Between the States, he was appointed major general in the Confederate Army on June 25, 1861, and lieutenant general to rank October 10, 1862. In the early months of the war he commanded the vast territory of Department No. 2, including the Mississippi River defenses from the Red River to Paducah, Kentucky. He also organized the Army of Mississippi. He subsequently served as a corps commander at the battles of Shiloh, Perryville, Murfreesboro, Chickamauga, and in the opening operations of the Atlanta campaign. While examining the Federal position in company with Generals' Joseph E. Johnston and William J. Hardee, General Polk was instantly killed by a cannon shot at Pine Mountain, Ga., on June 14, 1864.
