Ω Biography Thread Requests

Have a suggestion for a New American Civil War Biography Thread?

Do you know of an overlooked person who isn't listed in the Biography forum? Maybe an interesting personality that we'd all like to know better?

Here are the requirements for a Request:

The person must have been alive at some point between 1860 and 1865, it could be military, political, civilian, or even foreign, but they must have some legitimate connection to the American War Between the States, and have enough findable documentation available to create a profile. (These biographies have the best chance to be published)​
- or -​
If they died before 1860, and you want to request a biography on this forum, in their lifetime they must have done something of profound impact that effected those who lived through the Civil War, and have enough findable documentation available to create a profile. (These suggestions will be heavily moderated)​
The Biography Forum at CivilWarTalk in no way guarantees that suggestions will be followed, but we will consider all of them.​
PLEASE POST YOUR REQUEST BELOW IN THE REPLY BOX!
POST #2 will contain accepted suggestions!


This forum is not for Genealogical Research Threads!
We have other forums for that...

I recently came upon a google article about a man named Adophus E. Morse. Don't know much about him other than he was the last to pilot the final Confederate Balloon (and last in the civil war on either side). He was some sort of assisant to a captain Charles Cevor. I think he had the temporary rank of Lieutenant in the balloon corp then reverted back to private when his flying days were over and he returned to the Chatham Artillery, I think. He's buried in Corsicana, Texas and I'd like to learn more about this guy.
