He was a Brig. Gen. in the Confederate Army in Texas. This is from that site:

Alexander Watkins Terrell, Quaker, jurist, Civil War officer, and statesman, the son of Christopher Joseph and Susan (Kennerly) Terrell, was born in Patrick County, Virginia, on November 3, 1827.

In 1831 his Quaker parents migrated to Booneville, Cooper County, Missouri, where Terrell grew to maturity. After graduating from the University of Missouri, he returned to Booneville to study law in the office of Judge Peyton R. Hayden. He was admitted to the bar in 1849 and practiced law in St. Joseph, Missouri, until 1852, when he moved to Austin, Texas. There he soon won a reputation as a courtroom protagonist of great astuteness and skill.

Terrell was elected judge of the state's Second District in 1857. Due to his office and his friendship with Governor Sam Houston, an ardent Unionist, he took no part in the secession movement. Upon the expiration of his judicial term in 1863, however, he joined the First Texas Cavalry Regiment, Arizona Brigade, of the Confederate Army, as a major. Within two years he was assigned the rank of brigadier general by Gen. E. Kirby Smith, commander of the Trans-Mississippi Department, but the war ended before his promotion was confirmed.

As commander of what came to be called "Terrell's Texas Cavalry Regiment," he participated with distinction in the battles of Mansfield and Pleasant Hill during the campaign in northern Louisiana against Gen. Nathaniel P. Banks (the Red River Campaign). When the war ended he fled to Mexico, where he briefly served Emperor Maximilian as a battalion commander. His memoir, "From Texas to Mexico and the Court of Maximilian in 1865," appeared in 1933.

After Reconstruction, Terrell served in both the Texas Senate and House of Representatives. In spite of his public declarations declining his candidacy for re-election, he continued to be re-elected by record margins. In total, he served sixteen years in the state legislature.

From 1893 until 1897, Terrell was named minister to Turkey under U. S. President Grover Cleveland's second administration.

After his return from Turkey, the aging statesman became active in preserving the rich history that he had helped create in Texas. At his death on September 8, 1912, Terrell was serving as president of the Texas State Historical Association. He is buried in the state cemetery in Austin.
