6. General Maxcy Gregg
Riding toward the front, the brave South Carolinian fell from a rifle ball that entered his side and passed through his spine. He lingered in agony for 2 days before dying. His loss weighed especially heavy on his commander, Major General (A.P.)Hill. "A more chivalrous gentleman and gallant soldier never adorned the service which he so loved," Hill stated.
