And Then A.P. Hill Came Up, an online archive of information dedicated to the life and career of Confederate General Ambrose Powell Hill (1825-1865), important general during the American Civil War. The And Then A.P. Hill Came Up website is part biography, part tribute, part research archive. Unless you’re a Civil War aficionado, you probably have never heard of A.P. Hill. Even to Civil War history buffs, Hill is the most difficult to characterize of Lee’s generals.” One historian went so far as to term him “the mystery man of the Confederacy.” Even one of his biographies is aptly titled “Lee’s Forgotten General.”
