Civil War Union Army Officer. Commissioned Captain and commander of Company H, 8th New Jersey Volunteer Infantry on September 27, 1861, he fought in the Peninsular Campaign, the Seven Days, and the Second Battle of Bull Run. In an August 27, 1862 engagement at Kettle Run, Virginia (which was prelude to Second Bull Run) he led a detachment of his regiment that captured a number of Confederate prisoners. During the Second Bull Run engagement he briefly assumed command of the regiment when the senior captain, John Tuite, was killed. His after-battle report, written because he was the senior-most officer to survive the battle, can be found in the "Official Records of the Civil War". He was promoted to Major of the regiment on September 27, 1862 when Major William A. Henry resigned. Fought in the Battles of Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville before resigning himself on May 16, 1863.
