Of what Civil War general officer was it stated that he considered "dawn to be the first minute after midnight!"

Since nobody else is guessing, I may as well take a shot. I was going to guess Hooker, but he was usually preoccupied the first minute after midnight. I eliminated Leonidas Polk because I don't remember that being in the Bible unless one of his parishioners offered the saying during confessions. Nathan Bedford would certainly be a candidate but I don't remember many midnight forays for him, so I'm down to one - ol' sour lemon himself, Stonewall Jackson.

Outstanding deductions, Ned! It was "Old Blue Light," himself. So wrote Jeff Shaara in his book, Gods and Generals.
