Civil War Union Brevet Major General, US Congressman. He was admitted to the bar in 1837, was a delegate to the Whig National Convention of 1848 and served as a State Senator from 1855 to 1859.

He went on to command a brigade of the 15th Army Corps at Vicksburg and at the district of Memphis in 1864. For his military service he was brevetted Major General of US Volunteers on March 13, 1865.
