James Miller
Birth: Apr. 21, 1823
Easton
Northampton County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Jun. 1, 1862

Civil War Union Army Officer. He was commissioned as Colonel and commander of the 81st Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry on August 8, 1861. He led his troops until the May-June 1862 Battle of Fair Oaks, Virginia. In that battle he was directed to place his regiment on the very left of the Union lines, which exposed it to a flank attack. Soon after his men were deployed Confederate forces attempted to get around the regiment, and announced their presence with a volley that shot Colonel Miller in the heart, instantly killing him.
