Civil war Union Brigadier General. His most significant Civil War contribution came before the war even started. In January 1861, he ignored CSA pressure to surrender his command, which was stationed at Fort Barrancas, Pensacola, Florida. He instead moved it to the strategic Fort Pickens, Santa Rosa Island. This move ensured Union control of the Gulf of Mexico throughout the war. He later led a battalion of Regular Army troops at the Battle of Murfreesboro.
