Civil War Union Army Officer. Commissioned as Captain and commander of Company B, 9th Maine Volunteer Infantry on September 21, 1861. Led his company unit April 1863, when he was promoted to Major. A month later, on May 27, 1863 he was advanced to Lieutenant Colonel of the unit. He fought with the regiment in operations around Morris Island, South Carolina in July 1863, and in the failed Union assault on Fort Wagner. In May 1864 he became commander of the 9th Maine when Colonel Sabine Emery resigned. During the Cold Harbor Campaign of June 1864 he assumed commanded the 2nd Brigade, 3rd Division of the Union Army's XVIII Corps after its previous commander was wounded in battle. He was appointed Colonel of the 9th Maine on June 6, 1864, but was unable to be mustered in at that rank, due to the undersized nature of the regiment, which had been rendered only a fraction of its original strength due to 3 years of service. He ended his service on August 16, 1864 when he was honorably discharged from the Union Army for chronic disability. (bio by: Russ Dodge)
