Notes


Bio: "One of the Confederacy's most promising general officers early in the Civil War, Mississippian West Pointer (1842) Earl Van Dorn proved to be a disappointment and died, not at the hands of the enemy but at those of a jealous husband.


Posted to the infantry, he had won two brevets in the Mexican War, being wounded at the City of Mexico. Transferring to the cavalry in 1855, he was wounded in Indian fighting in 1858 near Wichita Village, Indian Territory (now Oklahoma).


Resigning as a major in the 2nd Cavalry on January 31, 1861, he offered his services to his native state. His assignments included: brigadier general, Mississippi State Troops (ca. January 1861); major general, Mississippi State Troops (ca. February 1861); colonel, Cavalry (March 16, 1861); commanding Department of Texas (April 21 - September 4, 1861); brigadier general, CSA (June 5, 1861); major general, CSA (September 19, 1861); commanding division, lst Corps, Army of the Potomac (October 4-22, 1861); commanding Ist Division, Potomac District, Department of Northern Virginia (October 22, 1861 - January 10, 1862); commanding Trans-Mississippi District, Department #2 (March 4 - June 20, 1862); commanding Department of Southern Mississippi and East Louisiana (June 20 - July 2, 1862); commanding District of the Mississippi, Department #2 (July 2 - October 1, 1862); commanding Army of West Tennessee, Department of Mississippi and East Louisiana (October 1862); commanding lst Corps, Army of the Department of Mississippi and East Louisiana (December 1862); commanding cavalry division, Army of the Department of Mississippi and East Louisiana (January 13 - 20, 1863); commanding Cavalry Corps, Department of Mississippi and East Louisiana (January 20 - February 1863); and commanding cavalry division, Army of Tennessee (February 25 - May 7, 1863). Early in the war he commanded in Texas where he seized U.S. property and received the surrender of regular army detachments. Promoted rapidly to brigadier and major general, he was ordered to Virginia where he led a division near Manassas.


Early in 1862 he was sent to command in Arkansas in order to get Ben McCulloch and Sterling Price to cooperate.


Launching an attack at Pea Ridge, he was repulsed after two days of fighting. Ordered east of the Mississippi, he arrived too late to take part in the fighting at Shiloh but participated in the unsuccessful defense of Corinth, Mississippi.


In the summer of 1862 he successfully defended Vicksburg but failed in his designs on Baton Rouge when the attack under John C. Breckinridge failed.


Another failure occurred when he attempted to retake Corinth in October 1862. By this time many Southerners were disenchanted with him, and he was placed in charge of the mounted troops under Pemberton. His raid on Holly Springs, Mississippi, was a major factor in ending Grant's campaign in central Mississippi.


Moving his division into middle Tennessee, he was killed on May 7, 1863, by Dr. George B. Peters for attentions paid by the general upon the physician's wife in Spring Hill.
(Hartje, Robert G., Van Dorn, The Life and Times of a Confederate General)

"MAJOR GENERAL EARL VAN DORN Commander, Army of the West


On January 10, 1862, Confederate President Jefferson Davis offered Mississippi-born Earl Van Dorn, command of the region west of the Mississippi River, known as the Trans-Mississippi. Two other generals, Henry Heth and Braxton Bragg had both turned down the command previously.


Fiery and impulsive, Van Dorn was a romantic, an accomplished painter, a poet and an excellent horseman. In 1842, he graduated from West Point. He ranked 52nd out of a class of 56, in a class that included 17 future Confederate and Federal generals. During the Mexican War, he was promoted twice for gallantry. While serving on the frontier with the 2nd US Cavalry, he was wounded severely in the arm, stomach and lung. In 1860, he was promoted to Major. (The 2nd Cavalry was considered to be the Army's best. The 2nd's other field officers were Colonel Albert Sydney Johnson, Lieutenant Colonel Robert E. Lee, and Major George H. Thomas, all of whom would gain fame during the Civil War.)


Prior to the Pea Ridge campaign, Van Dorn wrote home to his wife, "I am now in for it, to make a reputation and serve my country conspicuously or fail. I must not, shall not, do the latter. I must have St. Louis -- then Huzza!" After Pea Ridge, and again after Corinth, General "Damn Born" (as his men called him) was accused of negligence, disregarding his men's welfare and failing to adequately plan his campaign. After the disasterous battle of Corinth, MS, in October, 1862, he was sent before a court of inquiry. Although he was aquitted on all charges, he was never again trusted with the command of an army. He was given overall command of the cavalry operating around Vicksburg, MS. Several of his subordinates were Nathan Bedford Forrest, John Hunt Morgan and Joseph Wheeler. While there, his reputation as a womanizer became public. A Vicksburg newspaper reporter referred to Van Dorn as "the terror of ugly husbands". In 1863, he was shot in the back of the head by an outraged husband as he sat writing in his office in Spring Hill, TN."


SHIPS of the CONFEDERATE STATES --
CSS General Earl Van Dorn (1862)
CSS General Earl Van Dorn, a side-wheel river steamer, was fitted out in early 1862 at New Orleans as a River Defense Fleet "cottonclad" ram. In late March, she steamed up the Mississippi River to Memphis, Tennessee, where her outfitting was completed. In the naval action off Fort Pillow on 10 May, she attacked a Union mortar boat with gunfire and rammed the ironclad Mound City. On 1 June, she helped cover the Confederate evacuation of Fort Pillow, then retreated to Memphis, where, on 6 June she was the only survivor of the River Defense Fleet's final battle. After escaping to Yazoo City, Mississippi, General Earl Van Dorn was burned on 26 June 1862 to avoid capture by Federal warships."

"General Earl Van Dorn was assasinated by Dr. George Boddie Peters, apparently because Van Dorn had carried out an adultrous affair from Marth-May, 1863, with Jessie Helen McKissack Peters, wife of George Boddie Peters. After the murder of Van Dorn, George Peters took off and spent the next two years as a fugitive. Jessie was heard to remark, "I have lost my husband and my lover in the same day!" George and Jessie Peters were divorced in 1866, but reconciled and remarried in 1869.


On January 26, 1864 (8 1/2 months after Van Dorn's murder), Jessie McKissack delivered a daughter, Medora Wharton Peters. It is believed by her descendants that she was fathered by Van Dorn."
