John Stevens Bowen was born in Savannah, Georgia on October 30, 1830 and graduated from West Point in 1853. He resigned his commission three years later to take up the profession of architect in St. Louis where he was when the Civil War began. Bowen entered Confederate service as a captain in the Missouri militia and chief of staff for General D. M. Frost. He was captured by Union forces under General Nathaniel Lyon at Camp Jackson. After his release he was appointed colonel of the 1st Missouri Infantry and served under General Polk in Kentucky. He was promoted to brigadier general on March 14, 1862 and was attached to General Breckenridge’s division at Shiloh where he was wounded. For his participation in the Vicksburg and Port Gibson campaigns and for his ability and gallant conduct he was made major general on May 25, 1863. After his capture at Vicksburg, he died as a paroled prisoner in Raymond, Mississippi on July 13, 1863. Years after the war his body was moved to the Confederate Cemetery at Vicksburg.  [ad] [ph:L]
