Colonel of the 12th Virginia Infantry

Wounded 3 times during the Civil War; at the Battles of 2nd Manassas, the Wilderness, and at the Crater, Petersburg, Virginia

Document Signed


(1818-99) Born in Chesterfield County, Va., he served as a lieutenant of the 1st Virginia Volunteers during the Mexican War. As a captain of Virginia Militia he was officer of the day at the hanging of John Brown in 1859. Two years later, as a major of the 4th Virginia Battalion, Weisiger took his battalion to the Gosport Navy Yard at Norfolk, Virginia and occupied the city. Entering the Confederate Army as colonel of the 12th Virginia Infantry, on May 9, 1861, he served on the lower Peninsula until the spring of 1862, when his regiment was attached to the Army of Northern Virginia in the brigade of General William Mahone. With his command he fought at Seven Pines, the Seven Days Battles, and at 2nd Manassas where he was severely wounded and disabled until July 1863. At the the battle of the Wilderness, on May 6, 1864, he succeeded General Mahone in command of the brigade, where he was wounded, and was commissioned brigadier general. He also saw action at Spotsylvania and Cold Harbor. At the battle of the Crater, at Petersburg, on July 30, 1864, Weisiger greatly distinguished himself as he and General William Mahone led the Confederate counterattack. Both generals were largely responsible for the complete victory that followed, Weisiger being wounded in the battle. He surrendered at Appomattox Court House on April 9, 1865. Weisiger was wounded three times during the war, and had two horses shot out from under him. After the war, Weisiger returned to Petersburg, Virginia where he was a banker. He moved his business to Richmond, Virginia, where he died on February 23, 1899. He is buried at Blandford Cemetery, Petersburg, Virginia.
