Civil War Union Army Officer. Born in Scotland, his family emigrated to the United States and settled in Cincinnati, Ohio. He served during the Civil War as Colonel and commander of the 5th Ohio Volunteer Infantry, leading the regiment in several engagements, including the Battles of Gettysburg and Chattanooga, and the Atlanta Campaign. At the Battle of Gettysburg, he was placed in command of his own regiment as well as the 147th Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry. The regiment saw action at Little Round Top on July 1st and then at Culp's Hill the following day after orders to move to the Union right. A monument was erected to honor the 5th Ohio Infantry for their part in the Federal success at the battle depicting their regimental badge adorned with an owl and their motto, "Boys, Keep the colors up!"
