Civil War Union Brevet Brigadier General. He entered the Union Army at the start of the Civil War as a 1st Sergeant in the 22nd Ohio Volunteer Infantry, and was later commissioned a Captain in the 54th Ohio Volunteer Infantry, with whom he fought at the Battle of Arkansas Post, Arkansas on January 10, 1863. He was severely wounded in the action, and lost his right forearm to amputation. Because of his injuries he was transferred to the Veterans Reserve Corps, where he served as Captain and commander of 60th Company, 2nd Battalion VRC. The need for experienced officers to lead troops facilitated his return to active field duty, and he was commissioned Colonel and commander of the 43rd United States Colored Troops. He was brevetted Brigadier General, US Volunteers on March 13, 1865 for "gallant and meritorious services during the war". (bio by: Russ Dodge)
