Birth: unknown
Death: Dec. 28, 1913

Civil War Union Army Officer. He commanded the 6th Battery, New York Independent Volunteer Light Artillery, during the Civil War. He was mustered in as a 1st Lieutenant of the Battery (which was recruited in Rahway, New Jersey) soon after the start of the war. Stationed first at Harper's Ferry, Virginia, Walter Bramhall led a section of the battery at the Union disaster at Ball's Bluff, Virginia in October 1861. When the unit's first commander resigned on the eve of the 1862 Peninsular Campaign, he was promoted to Captain and given command of the battery. His command then served with distinction at the May 1862 Battles of Williamsburg (where it was overrun but recaptured), and Fair Oaks and the June 1862 Seven Days Battles. After commanding the battery for close to a year, he resigned on February 3, 1863, (bio by: Russ Dodge)
