Civil War Union Army Officer, US Congressman. He served during the Civil War as Major and commander of the 9th West Virginia Volunteer Infantry. He was captured at Guyandotte, (West) Virginia on November 10, 1861 when Confederate forces attacked and raided the town, and overran the inexperienced Union defenders, but escaped from his captors. He had been elected as a Unionist representing Virginia's 11th District in the United States House of Representatives in 1860, but Virginia's secession forced him into field service. When the western counties of Virginia became the State of West Virginia, he was elected as one of its first Congressman, representing the 3rd District from December 7, 1863 until March 3, 1867. (bio by: Russ)
