Civil War Union Army Officer, Historian. Entered the Civil War as a Private in Company I, 16th Pennsylvania Volunteer Cavalry, and eventually rose to Sergeant. However in April 1863 he received a commission of 2nd Lieutenant in Company A, 1st New Jersey Volunteer Infantry, which was the unit's color guard. He served with the 1st New Jersey Infantry, which was part of the famed "First Jersey Brigade" in the Battles of Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Mine Run, The Wilderness and Spotsylvania before he was honorably mustered out of service in June 1864. In 1910 the former soldier published the historical work "History of the First New Jersey Brigade From 1861 to 1865: Kearny's 1st New Jersey Brigade," which was for many years the only full length work of the Brigade that included the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 10, and 15th New Jersey Infantries.
