Conrad Feger Jackson
Birth: Sep. 11, 1813
Death: Dec. 13, 1862

Civil War Union Brigadier General. At the opening of the Rebellion he was employed in the management of a petroleum oil company in the Kanawha Valley, Virginia. He immediately resigned his position, returned to Pennsylvania and organized the 9th Peninsula Regiment as it's Colonel. He was soon promoted Brigadier General in command of the 3rd Brigade of US Corps, seeing action at Bull Run, South Mountain and Antietam. At the Battle of Fredericksburg, he was ordered to clear the open ground in front of the Union batteries when he was struck by a volley from the enemy and mortally wounded. In mentioning his death, General Meade said, he was an officer of merit and reputation, who owed his position to his gallantry and good conduct in previous actions. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)

You were also in command of your unit in the very little known engagement of Dranesville, Virginia on December 20, 1861. Thank you for your service to our country during our American Civil War. May you rest in peace, sir.
