James Allen Hardie: Sir, you will be remembered as an American soldier, serving in a number of important administrative positions in the Union Army during the American Civil War. When you were promoted to lieutenant colonel on September 28, 1861, you joined the staff of Maj. Gen. George B. McClellan. During the Peninsula, Maryland, and Fredericksburg campaigns of the Civil War , you were acting adjutant general of the Army of the Potomac, and on November 29, 1862, was appointed brigadier general of volunteers, but it was not confirmed by the United States Senate and the promotion was revoked on January 22, 1863. In 1863, you were appointed assistant adjutant general with the rank of major on the staff of the regular army, and on May 24, 1864, was made inspector general with the rank of colonel. On March 13, 1865, you got appointed a brevet major general in the regular army. You played an important administrative role in two key incidents during the war. During the Battle of Fredericksburg, you delivered the attack orders to Maj. Gen. William B. Franklin on December 13, 1862. Franklin did not conduct his attack to Maj. Gen. Ambrose E. Burnside's expectations, and you had been criticized for not ensuring that the two generals understood each other correctly. On June 28, 1863, you got appointed to be the officer who delivered the surprise order to Maj. Gen. George G. Meade at Frederick, Maryland, appointing him commander of the Army of the Potomac, three days prior to the Battle of Gettysburg, thanks for your bravery and heroic deeds, happy 190th birthday!
