In the Chattanooga campaign, he broke through the line and almost captured Braxton Bragg. He raided Richmond, where J. E.B. Stuart was killed and had victories in the Shenandoah Valley campaign. He beat Pickett at Five Forks and was instrumental in forcing the surrender of Robert E. Lee at Appomattox. His career was noted for his rapid rise to major general and his close association with General-in-chief Ulysses S. Grant.
