Brigadier General Francis Marion Cockrell (1 Oct 1834 – 13 Dec 1915) was a Confederate military commander who fought in many of the battles of the Atlanta Campaign, and participated in Hood's Tennessee Campaign later that year (where he was wounded). In April 1865, shortly before the end of the war, Cockrell was captured in Alabama. His brigade was considered one of the finest on either side, and Cockrell himself is widely recognized as one of the best combat brigadiers of the entire war.
Patrick Ronayne Cleburne was born in Ireland, the son of a protestant physician. After serving for 3 years with the British army, he moved to Arkansas.

Cleburne also supported arming slaves to fight for the South, though the idea never took off.
