Best Answer

As hostilities between the Confederates and the Union reached the boiling point of "no return" Braxton Bragg joined the Confederacy as a brigadier general in the Provisional Army of the Confederate States. During the first few months of the US Civil War, Bragg served as a coastal commander for all land forces from Pensacola, Florida to Mobile, Alabama. Confederate President Davis belied that Bragg showed great promise and in September of 1861 he received a promotion to Major General.
