Civil War Union Army Officer. A Westminister, Vermont native, he enlisted as Captain in Company F of the 1st Vermont Volunteer Cavalry on October 17, 1861. On October 4, 1862 he was promoted to the rank of Major. Captured at Morrisville Virginia on October 12, 1863, he was shuffled through several Southern prison camps before being paroled on August 3, 1864. He quickly proved himself thereafter and was called upon to fill the position of Lieutenant Colonel on November 19, 1864. His advancement through the ranks continued on May 23, 1865 when promotion to Colonel and commander of the 1st Vermont Cavalry was extended to him. Under honorable conditions, he was mustered out on June 21, 1865. In the post war era, he emigrated to California in 1888 and became a farmer. (bio by: Stonewall)
