Civil War Union Brevet Brigadier General. During the Mexican War, Miller commanded a company in the 2d Illinois Infantry and was wounded at Buena Vista. His initial service in the union army was as captain, 1st Missouri Infantry, followed by the same rank in the 1st Missouri Light Artillery. Having come to the attention of General John Schofield, Miller was appointed colonel, 18th Missouri Infantry, a position he held until he became a brigadier general in the Missouri militia. He was promoted to brevet brigadier general for "gallant & meritorious services in the battle of Shiloh." He was successful in Missouri in both politics and business. He served as mayor of Carondelet, president of the St. Louis & Iron Mountain Railroad and was elected to the Missouri General Assembly in 1860.
