Stephen Hinsdale Weed
Birth: Nov. 17, 1831
Death: Jul. 2, 1863

Civil War Union Brigadier General. He was a Union Brigade commander killed in action on the second day of the Battle of Gettysburg. A Regular Army officer, he commanded artillery in the early years of the war, commanding all the Army of the Potomac's V Corps artillery at the Battles of Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville. He was given command of a brigade of infantry in June 1863. In the tenuous fighting for Little Round Top on July 2, 1863 General Weed led his brigade into a breech in the line just as it was giving way. The brigade plugged the hole in vicious fighting (and aided Joshua L. Chamberlain's 20th Maine in its celebrated bayonet charge). General Weed was wounded in the fighting and died a few hours later. (bio by: Russ Dodge)
