Known as Tully, in the decade or more before the War he was a physician practicing in Washington County, Georgia. 1,2
In September 1861 he was appointed Captain, Company A of the 28th Georgia Infantry, and he was elected Major of the Regiment on 3 May 1862. He was captured in action at Seven Pines (VA) on 31 May 1862, but exchanged and returned to duty with the Regiment on 1 September.3
On the Campaign
He was in command as senior officer present, on the Maryland Campaign, and was wounded in action on 17 September.
The rest of the War
He was appointed Colonel of the Regiment in March 1863 (to rank from 3 November 1862), and led the Regiment at Chancellorsville, Olustee, the Wilderness to Cold Harbor, and at Petersburg. 3,4
Pension records show he'd been hospitalized with chronic dysentery, and then home, too ill for service, from November 1864 to the end of the War. He may never have fully recovered.5
