Civil War Union Army Officer, US Congressman. He was commissioned in July 1862 as a Captain in the 15th Vermont Volunteer Infantry, eventually being promoted up to Lieutenant Colonel. He fought with his regiment on the Third Day of the Battle of Gettysburg (July 3,1863), where his unit was part of the Vermont Brigade's celebrated flank attack on Pickett's Charge. Became a Brigadier General in the Vermont militia and was assigned to command a brigade that defended the US border during the time of the Confederate 1864 St. Albans Raid. After the war he was elected to represent two Vermont districts in the House of Representatives on two separate terms (the 3rd District from 1881 to 1883, then the 2nd District from 1885 to 1901). (bio by: Russ Dodge)
