Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. John Rogers Cooke (June 9, 1833 - April 10, 1891) was a Confederate general during the American Civil War. He was the son of Union general Philip St. George Cooke and the brother-in-law of Confederate cavalry leader Jeb Stuart. The son of a career army officer, Cooke was born at Jefferson Barracks, Missouri. After studying at Harvard, Cooke was commissioned into the United States Army in 1855 as a second lieutenant of the 8th Infantry. When Virginia seceded from the Union, in 1861 Cooke followed his brother-in-law, Jeb Stuart, south. To his dismay, his father remained loyal to the Union. In April 1862, Cooke was elected colonel of the 27th North Carolina Infantry. Although, wounded at the Battle of Antietam, he was able to keep the field and was promoted to general on November 1, 1862.show more
