I was born November 19, 1831 died September 19, 1881. I served in the American Civil War as a Major General in the Union Army and fought in the battles of Middle Creek, Shiloh and Chickomauga. Also I initially agreed with Radical Republican views regarding Reconstruction but, later favored a moderate approach for Civil Rights enforcement for Freedmen.
