John Singleton Mosby (1833-1916) studied at the University of Virginia and was admitted to the Virginia Bar in 1854. Upon the secession of Virginia he entered the Confederate military service and subsequently formed an independent cavalry unit which operated behind Union lines in a region that came to be known as "Mosby's Confederacy." After the war, Mosby held several U.S. Government posts, including a consulship in Hong Kong.
