Civil War Union Brevet Brigadier General. Son of a prominent Pennsylvania industrialist, he managed his father's mines after graduating from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1858. When the Civil War broke out, he joined the 28th Pennsylvania Infantry as a captain, but was promoted to major in five months. He commanded the regiment at Antietam. He was appointed commanding officer of the 147th Pennsylvania Infantry upon its formation in October of 1862. He served as Brigade commander at Gettysburg and on Sherman's March to the Sea. He was made a Brevet Brigadier General on January 12, 1865 "for special gallantry and noble conduct at the Battle of Peach Tree Creek" during the Atlanta campaign. After the war, he became involved with coal mining and manufacturing. (bio by: Thomas Fisher)
