Civil War Union Brevet Major General. When the Civil War broke out, he resigned his position as a Common Pleas Court Judge and accepted a commission as Colonel of the 36th Indiana in October 1861. He led the 36th Indiana at the Battle at Shiloh and a brigade in the Siege of Corinth. In 1863, he saw action at Stone River and at the Battle of Chickamauga, he was wounded in the neck. Promoted Brigadier General in July 1864, he commanded a brigade in the Atlanta Campaign and participated in the defeat of General John B. Hood's Confederate troops at Nashville, Tennessee.
