Robert Horatio George Minty
Birth: Dec. 4, 1831
Death: Aug. 24, 1906

Civil War Union Brevet Major General. He was commissioned as Major of the 2nd Michigan Volunteer Cavalry on October 2, 1862, but held that duty for only a month before he was transferred to the 3nd Michigan Volunteer Cavalry and promoted to Lieutenant Colonel. His time with the new regiment was again relatively brief, for in March 1862 he was given the task of recruiting another regiment that would become the 4th Michigan Volunteer Cavalry. Promoted to Colonel and officially given command of the unit on July 21, 1862, he led it as if fought in Kentkcy, Tennessee, Georgia and the Carolinas, taking part in the Battles of Chickamauga and Atlanta. Colonel Minty was brevetted Brigadier General, US Volunteers and Major General, US Volunteers on March 13, 1865 for "gallant and meritorious services during the war". Men under his command were the ones that captured fleeing Confederate President Jefferson F. Davis at Irwinsville, Georgia on May 9, 1865. Robert Minty was honorably mustered out on April 15, 1865 at Nashville, Tennessee, and became a successful railroad executive in his post-war career. (bio by: Russ Dodge)
