Felix Kirk Zollicoffer (May 19, 1812 - January 19, 1862) is best known for his role as a Confederate brigadier general. Of all American Civil War generals, of either side, he is alphabetically last, and certainly among the least of all. His one defender has been Thomas L. Connelly who, in the first volume of his history of the Army of Tennessee, argues that Zollicoffer was a capable strategist whose efforts were undermined by order from above.
He was killed in action at the Battle of Mill Springs (Kentucky), January 19, 1862. Some accounts claim that Union Brigadier General Speed S. Fry shot Zollicoffer, who had wandered into the Union position, thinking they were Confederate soldiers.
His final resting place is in Nashville.
