Civil War Union Brevet Brigadier General. A newspaper printer from Cincinnati, Ohio, he moved to Davenport, Iowa in 1856, where he became the editor of his brother Alfred’s newspaper, the Daily Gazette. Atthe beginning of the Civil War, he was commissioned as military aide to Iowa Governor Samuel Kirkwood, and then made commissioner of Camp McClellan in East Davenport. In 1862, he declined the command of the 16th Iowa Infantry, and was instead made lieutenant colonel of the regiment. He participated in the Battle of Shiloh, was severely wounded at the Battle of Corinth, and captured during the Battle of Atlanta. After his release in a prisoner exchange, he was promoted to Brevet Brigadier General for gallant and meritorious service, and then discharged for disability. Back in Davenport, he served for five years as postmaster, before accepting a two year appointment as Secretary of the Montana Territory (and acting governor). He also served briefly as registrar of the United States Land Office in the Montana Territory. He then retired back to Davenport, where he did freelance editorial work for local newspapers. He died at the Iowa Soldiers’ Home in Marshalltown, where he was recovering from injuries received when he was struck by a team of horses in West Davenport. (bio by: Dustin Oliver)
