William Wing Loring was born in Wilmington, North Carolina, December 4, 1818, and served in the Seminole War and the Mexican War where he was severely wounded and lost his arm. Later, he was colonel of a regiment sent against the Indians in New Mexico.

He resigned from the army to enter the Confederate service, and came into command of the Army of the Northwest, July 20, 1861 and was made a major-general in February, 1862.  His chief active service was in Kentucky, and in Mississippi, before and during the Vicksburg campaign. He also served under Polk, and as a division commander in the Army of Mississippi in the Atlanta campaign, and in the Army of Tennessee at Franklin and Nashville, and under Johnston in the Carolinas.

After the war he went to Egypt, where he served as general in command of a division in the army of the Khedive. He died in New York City, December 30, 1886 and is buried in Craig Memorial Park, St Augustine, Florida. [ad] [ph:L]
