General Ambrose Powell Hill graduated from West Point in 1847, but followed
his native Virginia when it seceded from the Union. He was the Confederate
Third Corps Commander at Gettysburg, and his men were the first Rebel
troops to engage the Union troops in the morning of the first day. He was
plagued by illness from 1864 until he was killed outside of Petersburg in 1865.
Hill is usually referred to as A. P. Hill, to differentiate him from another prominent (unrelated) Confederate general, D. H. Hill. His picture is available on an ash t-shirt, hoodie or crewneck sweatshirt.
