Biography:       Brigadier-General Francis A. Shoup



Brigadier-General Francis A. Shoup was born at Laurel,
Franklin county, Ind., March 22, 1834. He was appointed a
cadet at West Point from Indiana, and was graduated in 1855 as
brevet second lieutenant of artillery.

He served in garrison at Key West and Fort Moultrie; was
commissioned second lieutenant December 6, 1855, and served
against the Seminoles in Florida, from 1856 to 1858. He
resigned in 1860, and beginning the study of law was admitted
to the bar at St. Augustine, Fla., early in 1861.

In the war of 1861-65 he espoused heartily the cause of the
South, and early in the struggle, under the order of the
governor of Florida, he erected a battery at Fernandina. He
was appointed a lieutenant of artillery in the Confederate
army and was at first ordered to report to General Hardee in
the Trans-Mississippi department.

In October, 1861, he was commissioned major of artillery and
was in command of a battalion of twelve guns with the Arkansas
troops in Kentucky. General Hardee, in assuming command of
the army of Central Kentucky, made him chief of artillery, in
which capacity he served at the battle of Shiloh.

He it was who massed the artillery against the position
occupied by the command of Prentiss on the memorable first day
at Shiloh, thus becoming an important factor in the capture of
that fine body of Union troops. Under Beauregard he held the
important post of inspector of artillery.

He was sent with Hindman to Arkansas; was his chief of
artillery, and as such participated in the battle of Prairie
Grove. On September 12, 1862, he was promoted to brigadier-
general; and in April, 1863, he was ordered to Mobile, Ala.,
as chief of artillery for General Buckner. At Vicksburg he
commanded a Louisiana brigade and was captured upon the fall
of that city.

After being exchanged he served as chief of artillery to
Joseph E. Johnston and gained the hearty commendation of his
commander and the esteem of the soldiers. It was in a great
measure due to his skillful management of the artillery that
not a gun was lost in the several retreats of the army of
Tennessee from Dalton to Atlanta in 1864.

The works at the Chattahoochee, which Sherman declared were
the best he had ever seen, were constructed under his
supervision. Upon the removal of Johnston, General Hood made
Shoup his chief of staff. After the fall of Atlanta he was
relieved at his own request.

He was the author of a pamphlet urging the enlistment of negro
troops, which was submitted to the Confederate congress.

The year after the close of the war he was elected to the
chair of applied mathematics in the university of Mississippi.
Here he studied for the ministry and was admitted to orders in
the Episcopal church, of which he had become a member while
the Confederate army was in camp at Dalton, April, 1864.

He officiated as rector at Waterford, NY, Nashville, Tenn.,
and New Orleans, La.; also filled the chair of metaphysics in
the university of the South, at Sewanee, Tenn. He is the
author of a work on "Infantry Tactics"; while in Atlanta, in
1864, prepared a text-book on "Artillery Division Drill," and
in 1874 he published the "Elements of Algebra."
