Civil War Union Brevet Major General. He entered the Union Army on May 28, 1861, when he was commissioned as Captain and commander of Company F, 2nd Maine Volunteer Infantry. Promoted to Major of the regiment on September 14, 1861, he served in that duty until July 11, 1862. On that day he was commissioned as Colonel, and was transferred to command the 18th Maine Volunteer Infantry. On December 19, 1862 the unit's designation was changed to the 1st Maine Volunteer Heavy Artillery, and Colonel Chaplin led it up to the August 17, 1864 Battle of Deep Bottom, Virginia, where he received a mortal wound. After lingering for three days, he died of those wounds in a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania hospital. He was posthumously given the brevet promotions to Brigadier General and Major General, US Volunteers "for gallant and meritorious services at the Battle of Deep Bottom, Va.", with the dates of the brevets back dated to the day of his mortal wounding.
