Photo of Alfred Holt Colquitt

Please note that A.H. Colquitt in the photo above is wearing his brigadier general uniform. He was appointed to that rank on September 1, 1862.

Although the New Georgia Encyclopedia states that Colquitt rose to major general by the end of the war, I have found no reference that indicates he ever rose above brigade command. Moreover, the few photos of him in uniform that I have come across are all in the brigadier uniform, above.
