Civil War Union Brevet Major General. He began his Civil War service while a Private in the 7th New York State Militia regiment, but was soon tapped to serve as a 1st Lieutenant in the 68th New York Volunteer Infantry. After a time with his unit he was made part of the staff of Brigadier General Rufus Saxtion, serving as an Assisstant Adjutant General. he was given two opportunities to lead regiments, being named Colonel of the 180th New York Volunteer Infantry (a regiment that did not complete its organization) and the 106th New York Volunteer Infantry (an honor he declined). On March 13, 1865 he was brevetted both Brigadier General and Major General, US Volunteers for "gallant and meritorious services during the war". Only a few days shy of his 21st birthday, he became the youngest brevet Brigadier General in the Union Army. (bio by: Russ Dodge)
