Civil War Union Major General. He graduated from West Point in 1841, was commissioned an infantry officer, serving in action in the Seminole and Mexican Wars. At the outbreak of the Civil War, he was Assistant Adjutant General and was given command of a division in the Army of Potomac in August 1861. In November 1861, he was promoted Major General in command of the Army of the Ohio, seeing action at Shiloh, Corinth and Perryville. Complaints were made against Buell's unwillingness to follow orders from Washington led to an investigation, which resulted in he never being offered another command and he resigned from the Army in June, 1864. After the war he moved to Kentucky and became president of the Green River Iron Company. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
