Lithograph cdv of Johnson in his Federal uniform. No photographer’s backmark.

Albert Sidney Johnston (February 2, 1803 – April 6, 1862) served as a general in three different armies: the Texian Army, the United States Army, and the Confederate States Army. He saw extensive combat during his 34-year military career, fighting actions in the Black Hawk War, the Texas War of Independence, the Mexican–American War, the Utah War, and the American Civil War.

On December 21, 1860, Johnston took command of the Department of the Pacific.  He resigned on April 9, 1861, when his home state of Texas seceded from the Union. Johnston led the Confederates at Shiloh Church.  He was successful, at first, and Johnston was shot in the leg when he rode too far ahead of his troops.  Because he’d suffered nerve damage from a dueling wound, he didn’t realize the severity of his injury until his boot filled with blood.  He quickly bled to death on the battlefield.

Johnston was buried temporarily in New Orleans.  His journey finally ended in 1867 when his remains were taken to the State Cemetery in Austin, Texas. [jet] [ph:L]
