When honorary General Walter Williams died in 1959 at the age of 117, one of America’s most important periods in history came to an end. Williams was the last surviving soldier of the Civil War, having served in Hood’s Texas Brigade during the final months of the war. When the last surviving Union soldier died in 1956, Dwight Eisenhower bestowed upon Williams the honorary rank of general. He was buried in a Confederate general’s uniform.
