Nathan G. Evans’ low-hanging beard once extended further up his checks but the fire of his eyes burnt most of it away.

Evans — Shanks to his friends — proved his worth at the Battle of Bull Run where his heroic command was key to the Confederate victory. His reputation as a exemplary tactician grew through several more battles in the first few years of the Eastern theater. Never far from a barrel of his favorite whiskey, Evan’s excessive drunkenness caused constant conflict for the confederate command.
