Civil War Union Major General. Rose from Colonel of the 6th New Jersey Infantry to Major General, United States Volunteers. Severely wounded at the Battle of Chancellorsville, he was elevated to divisional command upon his return from his wounds. His division failed to carry out his orders to support an attack at the Battle of Spotsylvania, which resulted in the failure of that attack and General Mott being reduced to brigade command. He later commanded a division in the Army of the James, and distinguished himself in the operations around Petersburg.
