John Wesley Frazer (January 6, 1827 – March 16, 1906) was a soldier, planter, and businessman. He was a career officer in the United States Army, and then served as a Confederate general during the Civil War.

A graduate of the US Military Academy, he was serving as Captain in the 9th Infantry when he resigned his commission to serve in the Confederate Army in 1861. When the 8th Alabama was organized, he was appointed Lieutenant Colonel, then promoted Colonel in command of the 28th Alabama. In 1862, he led the 28th Alabama at the Battle of Shiloh and in the Kentucky Campaign. Promoted Brigadier General in 1863, he was sent to Tennessee to command the 55th Georgia and 64th North Carolina. He had charge of Cumberland Gap until he was forced to surrender to Union General Burnside in September 1863. He was held as a prisoner of war until after hostilities ended in the spring of 1865.

After the Civil War Frazer relocated to Arkansas, where he began operating a plantation. Several years later he moved to New York City, where he engaged successfully in business. Frazer died there from an accident in the spring of 1906, and was buried in Clifton Springs, NY.  [jet] [ph:L]
