Ambrose Powell Hill, West Point graduate, commander of the famous Light Division under "Stonewall" Jackson, and later, commander of the Army of Northern Virginia's 3rd Corps. A.P. Hill was of small stature, barely weighing 140 pounds, which gave him the appearance of having a large head. He was known as "Little Hill". Always at the front of his troops, Hill was always aggressive, but often a rash leader. Hill was killed by a Union foragers bullet a mere week from the wars' end, sparing him death by a terminal disease, which often rendered him out of action during the war.
