Civil War Union Brevet Brigadier General. He was a bank cashier in Chicago, Illinois when he joined the Union Army in late 1861. Commissioned 1st Lieutenant and Regimental Adjutant of the 4th Illinois Volunteer Cavalry, he assisted Colonel Theophilus Lyle Dickey in details of organization. A month after the 4th Illinois Cavalry participated in the April 1862 Battle of Shiloh, he resigned on May 3, 1862. On January 4, 1864, he joined the 12th Illinois Volunteer Cavalry as a Major and quickly rose to Lieutenant Colonel. He participated in Major General Nathaniel G. Banks' Red River Campaign and subsequently was ordered first to New Orleans, Louisiana, then to Baton Rouge. The 12th Illinois Cavalry was active in scouting and picket duty and participated in several expeditions including those to Liberty, Mississippi; Mobile, Alabama; Alexandria, Louisiana; and Houston, Texas. In January of 1865, the 4th Illinois Cavalry and the 12th Illinois Cavalry were consolidated. From October 13, 1865 until it was mustered out on May 29, 1866, he served as the Colonel of the 12th. On the day he was mustered out with his regiment, he was brevetted a Brigadier General, US Volunteers "for gallant and meritorious services." After the war he resumed his career as a banker in Chicago. (bio by: Thomas Fisher)
