Daniel Ullman
Birth: Apr. 28, 1810
Death: Sep. 20, 1892

Civil War Union Brigadier General. He was commanding general of the first black troops ordered raised by the Union. In 1862, after being released from a Confederate prison, he met with President Lincoln to persuade him to enlist black troops. The next year, he was sent to Louisiana to form what became known as the “United States Colored Troops”. His concerns that the black troops were being used only for menial tasks persuaded Secretary of War Edwin Stanton to act to insure that “fatigue duty” between black and white troops were equalized. In 1865 his regiments played a major role in the Siege of Mobile. He was brevetted to major general on March 13, 1865. After the war he was a strong advocate for equality of education and universal suffrage, believing these two items were essential for the successful reconstruction of the South. (bio by: Bigwoo)
