Colonel Sugg received the order from General Buckner to raise the white surrender flag over Fort Donelson.

He elected to stay with his men and was taken prisoner. He was imprisoned at Fort Warren in Boston Harbor, then exchanged.

He fought at the Battle of Chickamauga, where his General was wounded and he took command of the regiment. During this battle he was wounded 4 times.

At the Battle of Missionary Ridge he was mortally wounded and died a month later from the wounds.

At the time of his death, letters requesting his promotion to Brigadier General were sent to President Jefferson Davis from both his fellow officers as well as all the Confederate Senators from Tennessee.
