(September 10, 1836 January 25, 1906) was an American military commander and politician.
He is known for having served both as. A cavalry general in the Confederate States Army in the 1860s during the American Civil War, and then as a general in the United States Army during both the SpanishAmerican War and PhilippineAmerican War near the turn of the twentieth century. For much of the Civil War he served as the senior cavalry general in the Army of Tennessee and fought in most of its battles in the Western Theater. Wheeler and his troopers guarded the army's left flank at Chickamauga in September 1863, and after the routed Union Army collected in Chattanooga. Bragg sent Wheeler's men into central Tennessee to destroy railroads and Federal supply lines in a major raid.
On October 2 his raid at Anderson's Cross Roads (also known as Powell's Crossroads) destroyed more than 700 Union supply wagons, tightening the Confederates siege on Chattanooga, Pursued by his Union counterparts, Wheeler advanced to McMinnville and captured its 600-man garrison. There were more actions at Murfreesboro and Farmington, but by October 9 Wheeler had safely crossed the Tennessee River.
