Born into wealth and privilege on the large plantation island of Edisto, South Carolina, Micah Jenkins grew from being a conscientious youngster into one of the most exceptional brigade commanders in Gen. Robert E. Lee's Confederate army. Jenkins's story involves the active civic role he assumed prior to the war, his heroics at the battles of Bull Run and Chickamauga, and his accidental shooting and death during the battle of the Wilderness in May 1864.
