Civil War Union Army Officer, US Congressman. Entered the Civil War with a commission of Captain and commander of Company F, 9th Pennsylvania Reserves on July 28, 1861. Commanded his company at the Battle of Dranesville, Virginia on December 20, 1861, where he was severely wounded. He recovered enough in time to take part in some of the final battles of the Peninsular Campaign in 1862. In the September 17, 1862 Battle of Antietam, Maryland, he commanded the 9th Pennsylvania Reserves as they took heavy casualties in the Cornfield area. As his service went on through the Fredericksburg Campaign, his health deteriorated due to the lingering effects of his Dranesville wounds, and he was compelled to resign his commission on February 17, 1863. However, in the June-July 1863 Gettysburg Campaign, he was asked by Governor Andrew Curtin to organize all the Emergency Troops and Militia in Western Pennsylvania that was raised to meet the threat of the Confederate Invasion. He commanded the 5th Pennsylvania Militia as its Colonel until the end of July 1863, and led it as the regiment briefly occupied Newcreek, West Virginia. After the war he served as Mayor of Meadville in 1870 and was elected to represent Pennsylvania's 26th District in the United States House of Representatives, serving from 1879 to 1881. He was the son of Congressman John Dick. (bio by: Russ Dodge)
