Lieutenant-General Richard "Dick" Taylor (January 27, 1826 – April 12, 1879) was a planter, politician, military historian, and Confederate general. Following the outbreak of the American Civil War, Taylor joined the Confederate States Army, serving first as a brigade commander in Virginia, and later as an army commander in the Trans-Mississippi Theater. Taylor commanded the District of West Louisiana and was responsible for successfully opposing United States troops invading upper northwest Louisiana during the Red River Campaign of 1864.

He was the only son of Zachary Taylor, the 12th president of the United States. After the war and Reconstruction, Taylor published a memoir about his experiences.

He died on April 12, 1879, of dropsy (edema related to congestive heart failure) in New York City. Taylor's body was returned to Louisiana for burial at Metairie Cemetery, New Orleans. [jet] [PH:L]
