Civil War Union Brevet Brigadier General. When the war broke out, Bishop joined the 2nd Minnesota Volunteer Infantry. After training at Fort Snelling, the unit was sent to Kentucky in October of 1861 and participated in the battles of Mill Springs and Perryville. They were an integral part of the defense of Snodgrass Hill in the Battle of Chickamauga, where they suffered heavy losses. They continued to serve with the Army of the Cumberland at Missionary Ridge and participated in Sherman's March to the Sea. Bishop was successively promoted to captain, major, lieutenant colonel, and colonel in the same unit. He was the commanding colonel of the 2nd Minnesota from March 5, 1865 until the unit was mustered out of service on July 11, 1865. On June 7, 1865, he was made brevet brigadier general for meritorious services rendered during the conflict. After the war, he resumed his career as a civil engineer and also became a railroad executive and real estate agent. (bio by: Thomas Fisher)
