James McQueen McIntosh was born into a family of historic military figures at Fort Brooke, Florida, now known as Tampa. His father was Army Colonel James S McIntosh and he was killed in the Mexican War. His brother, John Baillie McIntosh, was also a General in the Civil War, but he served with the Union forces. Another ancestor was a Revolutionary War commander, General Lachlan McIntosh, who was a Revolutionary War hero and great-grand uncle. James graduated last in the West Point Class of 1849. He was stationed at Fort Smith when Arkansas and his native Florida began seceding in 1861. When the Civil War broke out he immediately resigned his Union Army commission and was commissioned a Colonel, Second Arkansas Mounted Rifles, Confederate States Army. Promoted to Brigadier General, he was given command of the First Brigade in General McCulloch’s division. During a charge against the Union forces at the Battle of Pea Ridge, Arkansas, on March 7, 1862, General McCulloch was killed. Command fell to General McIntosh and fifteen minutes later he was shot through the heart and died in the exact same spot as McCulloch.
