Partial List Of Living Confederate Generals.

The article in the VETERAN for May under title of "The Last of the Line" was misleading in that it created the impression that the generals whose pictures appeared with that article were the only surviving general officers of the Confederate army. Failing to get in communication with some of the known survivors and others not being known at the time, an explanation should have been given to that effect in connection with the article. It is not known definitely now just hown many are with us yet, but mention should have been made of Gen. John McCausland, of West Virginia; G. Felix Robertson, of Texas; Gen. George P. Harrison, of Alabama; Gen. T. T. Munford, of Virginia; Gen. Thomas Benton Smith, of Tennessee; and the following should perhaps be included in the list of survivors; Gens. W. W. Kirkland, Robert D. Johnston, William McRea, North Carolina; R. M. Gano, Texas; James P. Sims, Georgia-all brave and gallant soldiers.

The last lieutenant general (S. B. Buckner), two major generals (C. J. Polignac and L. L. Lomax), and two brigadiers (Francis T. Nicholls and J. M. Logan) have died within the past three years.
