Civil War Union Brevet Brigadier General. He entered the Union Army with a commission of Lieutenant Colonel in the 23rd New York Volunteer Infantry on May 16, 1861. After a time as the regiment's second-in-command he was detailed to the staff of Major General John F. Reynolds, serving as his Assistant Inspector General. He was then detailed to served as the Deputy Provost-Marshal-General of the Army of the Potomac before being mustered out on May 22, 1863 when his enlistment expired by law. He rejoined the Union war effort a short time later, receiving a commission of Colonel and commander of the 107th New York Volunteer Infantry, replacing Colonel Alexander S. Diven, who had been elected to the United States Congress. Very soon after he joined his new command, led his regiment at the July 1863 Battle of Gettysburg, where they fought on Culp's Hill and at the Spangler Spring. He and his men were soon transferred to Major General William T. Sherman's Army in the South, and participated in the Atlanta Campaign, the March to the Sea, and the operations in the Carolinas that ended the War in that region. Colonel Crane occasionally commanded a Provisional Brigade during that time. He was brevetted Brigadier General, US Volunteers on March 13, 1865 for "gallant and meritorious services during the recent campaign in Georgia and the Carolinas".
