Georgia 50th Infantry Regiment
Peter McGlashin of this regiment is often referred to as General in numerous post-war references and that he received his Generalship, late in the
war. None of my reference sources list this either, except for
Henderson. And I point this out: 1) The brigade was commanded by James
Simms at the time, and Simms and McGlashin were both captured at
Sailor's Creek; this incident, while creating a vacancy at the brigade
level, does not provide McGlashan with the opportunity to fill it. 2)
Some people feel that since McGlashan was state commander of the
confederate veterans, that the title General was honorary.
McGlashan, Peter Alexander Selkirk-Colonel.
