Civil War Union Brigadier General. An 1835 graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York, he served for a very short time in the Army before resigning his commission, and embarking on a successful civil engineer career. During the Mexican War, he led a company of the 1st New York Volunteers, serving in California. When the Civil War started he was commissioned Lieutenant Colonel of the newly raised 16th United States Regular Infantry, but resigned that commission before he ever joined the unit to accept an appointment of Brigadier General of Volunteers (January 1862). Served as an Army of the Potomac IV Corps brigade commander in the Spring 1862 Peninsular Campaign, and in the Departments of North Carolina and Virginia. In mid-1863 he commanded the District of Virginia, but ran afoul of Unionist Virginia Governor Francis H. Pierpont, who had demanded all personal property of Southerners who refused to take an Oath of Allegiance to the Union be confiscated. General Naglee refused to support this order, and was relieved from his command for his stand. From 1863 to April 1864 he was stationed in Cincinnati, Ohio, to "await orders" which never came, and was discharged with honor when his enlistment term ended. (bio by: Russ Dodge)
