Biographical/Historical Sketch:
Albert Sidney Johnston (February 2, 1803-April 6, 1862)


Johnston was born in Washington, Kentucky, to Dr. John and Abigail Johnston. Albert Johnston was educated under the direction of private tutors and later attended Transylvania University, where he excelled in Mathematics and Latin. In 1822, he was appointed to the United States Military Academy, where he earned honors in Mathematics and acquired the rank of corps adjutant as a first-classman. He graduated as a brevet 2nd lieutenant, 2nd Infantry, and subsequently served at Sackett's Harbor, New York (1826). On June 1, 1827, he took a commission of 2nd lieutenant, joining the 6th Infantry at Jefferson Barracks, Missouri. He participated in the Black Hawk War as regiment adjutant.


Johnston married Henrietta Preston on January 20, 1829. On April 24, 1834, he resigned his commission because his wife was ill. She died on August 12, 1835, leaving two children in her husband's care.


After a short period at farming in St. Louis, Missouri, Johnston moved to Texas where he enlisted as a private in the Texas Army. On August 5, 1836, he was appointed adjutant-general by General Rusk, commander of the Army of Texas. As a senior brigadier-general, on January 31, 1838, he took command of the Texas Army. On December 22, 1838, he was appointed the Secretary of War for the Republic of Texas. During his term in office he was instrumental in freeing the Texas borders from Indian raids. However, his enthusiasm in his crusade against the Cherokees invoked the displeasure of General Sam Houston; on March 1, 1840, Johnston resigned his office.


On October 3, 1843, while in Kentucky, he married Eliza Griffin, first cousin to his late wife. They had two children to survive to adulthood. On his return to Texas Johnston settled in Brazoria County, where he purchased "China Grove." This property purchase caused him financial difficulty.


At the start of the Mexican War, he was commissioned colonel of the 1st Texas Rifle Volunteers. He served under General Butler at Monterrey, as an inspector general. The following few years, he farmed at "China Grove." On December 2, 1849, he took a commission as a paymaster with the United States Army. He served in this capacity along the Texas frontier until his appointment as colonel of the 2nd Calvary. On April 2, 1856, Johnston took command of the Department of Texas. He served in Utah, from 1858-1860, as brevet brigadier-general, where he succeeded in putting down threats of a Mormon uprising without the use of force.


In December of 1860, Johnston departed for San Francisco where he commanded the Department of the Pacific for three months. After Texas seceded, he resigned his commission (April 10, 1861) and retired from his duties when General Sumner arrived, April 25, 1861.


Johnston was accused of plotting to win California for the Confederacy. However, Johnston was not desirous of civil strife. He retreated to Los Angeles to avoid such rumors. Realizing their error, the Federal Government asked Johnston to consider a command with the Union forces-Johnston declined. Leaving his family in the charge of his brother-in-law, Johnston joined Alonso Ridley's Company and returned to the South. In Richmond he joined Jefferson Davis, where he was appointed commanding general of the Western Department. He secured Bowling Green, Kentucky and began to form and train an army. Johnston's army was severely outnumbered and lost at Mill Spring (January 19, 1862), Fort Henry (February 6, 1862), and Fort Donelson (February 16, 1862). Johnston was forced to retreat to Nashville and then Corinth, where he engaged the Federals at Shiloh Church (April 3, 1962). Johnston succeeded in turning the enemy back to the Tennessee River. On the verge of victory, Johnston was mortally wounded in an artery and bled to death.


After a temporary interment at New Orleans, Louisiana, Johnston's body was carried to Austin, Texas for burial (January 1867). An order from General Sheridan refused to honor Johnston with a military funeral procession.


Scope and Content: This letter is dated December 2, 1849 from Brazoria County Texas and was written and signed in the hand of Albert Sidney Johnston. The letter is addressed to "General R. Jones, Adj. General, U.S. Army" and concerns Johnston's appointment as a paymaster in the United States Army. The letter notes that Johnston received news of the Presidential appointment from G.W. Crawford, Secretary of War. Also mentioned is Johnston's taking the oath of office.


Originally, according to the letter itself, the oath of office and the memoranda of the President were also enclosed. This was in accordance with the instructions of the Department of War. However, those items are not a part of this collection.


In a brief postscript, Johnston states that he will wait at Galveston for General Jones' orders.

GENERAL ALBERT SIDNEY JOHNSTON, C.S.A.
February 2, 1803 – April 6, 1862
Albert Sidney Johnston was born in 1803 to John and Abigail Harris Johnston in Washington, Kentucky. He was educated at Transylvania University in Lexington and later secured an appointment to West Point. After graduating in 1826, Johnston received his commission as 2nd Lieutenant of Infantry from John Quincy Adams. He served in the Black Hawk War and resigned his commission in 1834.


Johnston enlisted in the Texas Army in 1836 after hearing Stephen F. Austin, who was on a recruiting mission for the young Republic of Texas, spoke in Louisville just one day after the fall of the Alamo. Later, Johnston became Brigadier General and Chief Commander of the Texas Army. He served as Secretary of War in the Republic of Texas from 1836-1840. As a Colonel in the Texas volunteer regiment, Johnston fought at Monterrey in the Mexican War.


In 1849, Johnston was reappointed to the U.S. Army and placed in command of the Department of Texas. In 1857, he led an expedition to Utah and was made Brevet General. He remained there until 1860, commanding the Department of Utah.


When Texas seceded, Johnston resigned his commission in the U.S. Army and was appointed a General in the Army of the Confederacy by Jefferson Davis. He was in command of all Confederate troops west of the Alleghenies and successfully surprised Grant at Shiloh in April 1862. Tragically, he was mortally wounded in that battle and died on the field. Johnston, who wished to be buried "with a handful of Texas earth on my breast", is buried in the Texas State Cemetery in Austin, Texas. His gravesite is adorned with a beautiful white marble sculpture created by Elizabeth Ney, which portrays Johnston in repose, as he fell on the battlefield.

"Johnston, Albert Sidney (1803-1862) Half-brother of Josiah Stoddard Johnston. Born in Washington, Mason County, Ky., February 2, 1803. Texas Republic Secretary of War, 1838-40; general in the Confederate Army during the Civil War. Killed while leading his forces at the Battle of Shiloh, Hardin County, Tenn., April 6, 1862. Original interment at St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, New Orleans, La.; reinterment in 1867 at Texas State Cemetery, Austin, Tex."


"Albert Sidney Johnston (1803-1862 At the beginning of the Civil War it was almost universally agreed that the finest soldier, North or South, was Albert Sidney Johnston. But his Civil War career was a definite disappointment to the Confederacy. The Kentucky-born Johnston was appointed to West Point from Louisiana and graduated eighth in the class of 1826. After eight years of service he resigned to care for his terminally ill wife. A failure at farming, he went to Texas and joined the revolutionary forces as a private. He rose to the forces' chief command as senior brigadier the next year.


He served as secretary of war in the Republic of Texas and commanded the lst Texas Rifles in the Mexican War. Reentering the regular army in 1849 as a major and paymaster, he became colonel, 2nd (old) Cavalry, in 1855. For his services in the 1857 campaign against the Mormons in Utah he was brevetted brigadier general. He resigned his commission on April 10, 1861, but did not quit his post on the West Coast until his successor arrived.


Relieved, he began the long trek to Richmond overland. Meeting with Jefferson Davis, he entered Confederate service where his assignments included: general, CSA (August 30, 1861, to date from May 30, 1861); commanding Department No. 2 (September 15, 1861 - April 6, 1862); and in immediate command of the Central Army of Kentucky, Department No. 2 (October 28 - December 5, 1861 and February 23- March 29, 1862).


As the second ranking general in the Southern army he was given command of the western theater of operations. Establishing a line of defense in Kentucky from the Mississippi River to the Appalachians, he held it until it was broken at Mill Springs in January and at Forts Henry and Donelson in February 1862. Abandoning Kentucky and most of Tennessee, he fell back into northern Mississippi where he concentrated his previously scattered forces.


In early April he moved against Grant's army at Shiloh. In what was basically a surprise attack, he drove the enemy back. While directing frontline operations he was wounded in the leg. Not considering his wound serious, he bled to death. Grant, writing in his memoirs, considered Johnston as having failed to live up to earlier expectations.

"Born in Washington, Kentucky in 1803, Albert Sidney Johnston attended Transylvania University before graduating from the U. S. Military Academy in 1826.


Johnston resigned his military commission in 1834 because of his wife's illness, and farmed near St. Louis in 1835 before coming to Texas to enlist as a private in the Texas army. Because of his military background, he advanced quickly. By early 1837 he was named senior brigadier general of the Texas army. This appointment resulted in a duel with Felix Huston, the man he replaced. Due to an injury suffered in the duel, however, Johnston was unable to take his new post.


Almost two years later, Johnston was appointed Secretary of War under President Lamar. He served in the Mexican War and later re-entered the service of the U. S. army. At the outbreak of the Civil War, Johnston again resigned his U. S. military commission and joined the Confederacy.


In the Confederate army, Johnston was appointed by Confederate President Jefferson Davis as a general in charge of the Western Department. On April 6, 1862, Johnston won the Battle of Shiloh, but was killed in the conflict. He was temporarily buried in New Orleans, but his remains were later transferred to Texas for burial in the State Cemetery in Austin."

BIOGRAPHY
Albert Sidney Johnston was born in Washington, Kentucky, on February 2, 1803. Although he was born in Kentucky, he thought of himself as a Texan. Johnston graduated from West Point in 1826, and served with distinction in the Black Hawk and Mexican Wars. He resigned from the US military after Texas seceded, and was placed in charge of the Confederate Department No. 2 by his close friend, Confederate President Jefferson Davis. Given the rank of full general, he was second only to Samuel Cooper in rank and seniority. After a series of unsuccessful operations in Kentucky and Tennessee, he began planning a bold maneuver. In April of 1862, he led his troops in a surprise attack on Union troops. This began the Battle of Shiloh. During the battle, Johnston was shot in the right leg by a stray minié bullet. He bled to death, on April 6, 1862."

"JOHNSTON, ALBERT SIDNEY (1803-1862). Albert Sidney Johnston, Confederate general, son of John and Abigail (Harris) Johnston, was born at Washington, Kentucky, on February 2, 1803. He attended Transylvania University before he entered the United States Military Academy at West Point, from which he graduated in June 1826. He served at Sackett's Harbor, New York in 1826, with the Sixth Infantry at Jefferson Barracks, Missouri, in 1827, and as regimental adjutant in the Black Hawk War. On January 20, 1829, he married Henrietta Preston. Because of his wife's illness, he resigned his commission on April 22, 1834, and farmed near St. Louis in 1835. She died on August 12, 1835. In 1836 Johnston moved to Texas and enlisted as a private in the Texas Army. On August 5, 1836, he was appointed adjutant general by Thomas Jefferson Rusk and on January 31, 1837, he became senior brigadier general in command of the army to replace Felix Huston. A duel with Huston resulted; Johnston was wounded and could not take the command. On December 22, 1838, he was appointed secretary of war for the Republic of Texas by President Mirabeau B. Lamar, and in December 1839 he led an expedition against the Cherokee in East Texas. On March 1, 1840, Johnston returned to Kentucky, where, on October 3, 1843, he married Eliza Griffin, a cousin of his first wife. They returned to Texas to settle at China Grove Plantation in Brazoria County.



During the Mexican War he was colonel of the First Texas Rifle Volunteers and served with W. O. Butler as inspector general at Monterrey, Mexico. On December 2,1849, Johnston became paymaster in the United States Army and was assigned to the Texas frontier. He went with William S. Harney to the Great Plains in 1855, and on April 2,1856, he was appointed colonel of the Second Cavalry. From 1858 to 1860 Johnston acted as brevet brigadier general in an expedition to escort the Mormons to Salt Lake City. He was sent to the Pacific Department and stationed at San Francisco in 1860. At the beginning of the Civil War in 1861, he resigned his commission in the United States Army, refused the federal government's offer of a command, and returned overland to Texas.


Jefferson Davis appointed Johnston a general in the Confederate Army and assigned him command of the Western Department. Johnston took Bowling Green, Kentucky, issued a call for men, and formed and drilled an army. He knew the weaknesses of his army: small size, lack of organization, long line of defense, and location in river territory. In February 1862 he moved his line of defense to the vicinity of Nashville, Tennessee, and later to Corinth, Mississippi. On April 6, 1862, he was killed while leading his forces at the battle of Shiloh. He was temporarily buried at New Orleans. By special appropriation, the Texas Legislature, in January 1867, had his remains transferred to Austin for burial in the State Cemetery. In 1905 a stone monument executed by noted sculptor Elisabet Ney was erected at the site. "

Albert Sidney Johnston
Charles P. Roland
To Confederate president Jefferson Davis, America had no finer soldier than Kentucky-born Texan Albert Sidney Johnston. Following the outbreak of the Civil War, Davis turned to Johnston to take control of the deteriorating situation in the Western Theater. With a widely dispersed and undermanned army, Johnston tried but failed to hold the line in Kentucky and Tennessee. After yielding Forts Henry and Donelson, and Nashville, the Confederates fell back into Alabama and Mississippi, where Johnston rallied his troops for a surprise attack against Federal forces in western Tennessee.


Thus far, Johnston's leadership had brought defeat and retreat, prompting critics to call for his removal, but Davis would have none of that. Finally, in April 1862, Johnston unleashed his Rebel army in what came to be known as the Battle of Shiloh - the first great battle of the war and one of the bloodiest. Surprise was complete and a stunning Confederate victory seemed likely. Johnston appeared to be everywhere, directing the fighting and inspiring his men. But at the height of the battle, he fell wounded and bled to death in a matter of minutes. The Confederate attack lost momentum and eventually was halted. The next day a reinforced Federal army drove the Southerners from the field. The battle that promised so much ended in a bitter defeat made worse by the loss of a man upon whom rested so much hope.


Questions about Johnston's generalship and the impact of his death have occupied students of the Civil War since 1862. While no one can know for sure if Johnston would have confirmed Davis's lofty opinion of him, at Shiloh, at least, he showed great promise. As Charles P. Roland writes, "Jefferson Davis had reason to consider Johnston his greatest general."

Shiloh, battle of
April 6-7, 1862, one of the great battles of the American Civil War. The battle took its name from Shiloh Church, a meetinghouse c.3 mi (5 km) SSW of Pittsburg Landing, which was a community in Hardin co., Tenn., 9 mi (14.5 km) S of Savannah on the west bank of the Tennessee River. After the fall of Fort Donelson to the Union army, Gen. Ulysses S. Grant advanced up the Tennessee River and established headquarters for his Army of the Tennessee (some 40,000 men) at Savannah. Five divisions were placed in the vicinity of Pittsburg Landing and one at Crump's Landing, c.5 mi (8 km) north. Meanwhile, General Buell, commanding the Army of the Ohio (35,000 men), was marching W from Nashville to join Grant and crush the Confederate army at Corinth, Miss., a strategic railway point. Gen. A. S. Johnston, about to make a stand after leading the retreat from original Confederate positions in the West, commanded the army at Corinth (40,000 men), with Gen. P. G. T. Beauregard second in command. Johnston's plan was to defeat Grant before Buell could arrive. He moved to attack on April 3, but because of delay in the 20-mi (32-km) advance to the Union front, it was not until early on April 6 that his troops fell upon the enemy near Shiloh Church. Grant's position was unfortified, in spite of orders to the contrary from General Halleck, Union commander in the West. Having offensive plans of his own, Grant expected no attack, and consequently his irregularly placed divisions were thrown back in confusion at the Confederate assault. In the day's fighting the Confederates swept the field, but Johnston was killed. When Beauregard, who assumed command, ceased battle at nightfall, the Union forces had been pushed back over a mile from their first positions but, although hard-pressed, still held Pittsburg Landing, which the Confederates wanted to secure in order to cut off retreat. With 20,000 reinforcements from the division at Crump's Landing and the advance divisions of Buell's army, the Federals took the offensive on April 7. Beauregard, outnumbered and without fresh troops, resisted for about eight hours and then proceeded to withdraw to Corinth; the Union command did not make any effective pursuit. Corinth was abandoned to the Union forces one month later. Ultimately, Shiloh may be considered a Union victory because it led to later successful campaigns in the West. It was one of the bloodiest contests of the war, losses on each side reaching over 10,000, and, with the possible exceptions of Antietam and Gettysburg, it has been the subject of more controversy than any other Civil War battle. http://www.slider.com/enc/48000/Shiloh_battle_of.htm

The summer of 1857 saw an entire new quota of judges in Utah,President Buchanan then appointing David R. Eccles, chief justice;Charles E. Sinclair and E. D. Potter, associate justices. The new judges came to the territory with Col. Albert Sidney Johnston. Judge Sinclair was assigned to the first district, which included Salt Lake City. Chief Justice Eccles established his headquarters at CampFloyd, and Judge Potter was assigned to the southern district. He soon resigned and was succeeded by John Cradlebaugh, who arrived in Utah early in June, 1858.

Further Appointments


Among the soldiers of Col. Albert Sidney Johnston's command were several who had received the degrees of Masonry. After Camp Floyd was established they decided to organize a lodge and applied to the Grand Lodge of Missouri for a dispensation. The lodge was organized at Camp Floyd on March 6, 1859, and on June 1, 1860, it was granted a charter as "Rocky Mountain Lodge, No. 205," by the Missouri Grand Lodge. This first Masonic Lodge in Utah was short-lived, as most of the members belonged to the army, and when Johnston was ordered to New Mexico in 1861 the lodge surrendered its charter.

Chapter XXXI: Fraternal And Civic Societies
Masonry In Utah


In August, 1858, Mr. Walker returned to Utah. General Albert Sidney Johnston had established a camp of United States troops at Camp Floyd, about fifty miles from Salt Lake, and Mr. Walker, repairing to that point, served as a clerk with the army long enough to find out what the situation was and then with his three brothers, opened a store at Camp Floyd with a general supply of dry goods, groceries, cigars and tobacco, and such other articles as could be sold to the soldiers, all bought in Salt Lake on credit, at sixty per cent, advance on first cost and thirty cents more per pound added for freight. The first year the brothers made a profit of twenty thousands dollars. Meanwhile, in Salt Lake, in 1859, the Walker brothers had opened a large general store and bank, and this business was the beginning of the largest mercantile and financial institutions in the intermountain country, the Walker Brothers Dry Goods Company, and the Walker Brothers Bankers.
