The new Commander In Chief of the United Confederate Veterans, Gen Clement A Evans, was born and educated in Georgia. He practiced law and served as Judge of the county court for some time prior to the Civil War, and in 1859, he was State Senator.
He enlisted promptly in the South's effort for independence, going to the Army in Virginia, and was promoted to Major, Colonel, and Brigadier General, and commanded a division as Major General late in the war.
After Lee's surrender at Appomattox, he returned to Georgia and practiced law. Later he engaged in literary work, and is at present a Prison Commissioner for the State.
In the Veteran organization he commanded the Georgia Division, U C V, until the death of General Gordon, when Gen S D Lee was promoted to Commander In Chief, and General Evans was advanced to command of the Army of Tennessee Department, and then at Birmingham he was elected successor of Gen S D Lee.
