With a name like this Brevet Major General Jeff Davis did lead an interesting life. He was at Fort Sumter, SC during the initial bombardment in April, 1861. He is also known for killing his superior officer Major General William (Bull) Nelson after having his face slapped during an argument. He was never tried for that crime as the Union Army had a need for experienced field commanders
