OK, my bad. I should have worded my question correctly. So the answer is:
1st Texas Regiment: lost 186 of the 226 engaged at Sharpsburg, a casualty rate of 82.3% percent. This staggering casualty rate was the highest suffered by any regiment, North or South, on a single day, during the entire war.
26st North Carolina Regiment: suffered 72% casualties out of the 820 engaged at Gettysburg.

I can name 3 who died needlessly
Cleborne
Gist

I could name one that should have. But I digress.

Also, Adams & Strahl
All were brigadier generals except Cleborne, who was a major general.
note: Gen John Carter was wounded and died about 10 days later.

This Gent captured 11,000 yanks and around 10k long and small arms along with 73 cannon with a few strategic moves. Who did this and where?

I think you are referring to the activity at Harpers Ferry during September of 62.
Lots of players but I think General Jackson got the credits

Jackson prolly got too much credit overall considering all the direct orders he did not exactly closely follow or times he delayed or did things his way like attacking fortified yank positions without any sort of recon first. Maybe South Mountain comes to mind.

I have read several books that detailed the 7 days events when Gen Lee first took charge of the ANV.

From the accounts there Jackson didnt seem to be able to follow even the simplest orders. Somehow he and RE Lee came to understand each other and work together.

Who said this:

What Yank was so impressed at the pomp of his surrender of the US Armory at Augusta Ga at wars inception that he later joined the Southern cause? He was a Union Captain when he surrendered.

A Union Captain = a Southern Colonel, soon a General.
