Paul Revere's three grandsons, out of 53 total grandchildren, who participated in the American Civil War were as follows: Paul Joseph Revere who was a Colonel of the 20th Massachusetts Infantry Regiment, Joseph Warren Revere who was a Colonel of the 7th New Jersey Volunteer Infantry Regiment and later became the commander of the Excelsior Brigade and lastly, Edward Hutchinson Revere who was an Assistant Army Surgeon. Paul and Edward Revere were ultimately captured by Confederate troops during the Battle of Ball's Bluff in Virginia on October 21, 1861 and subsequently sent to Libby Prison until they were exchanged. Joseph Warren Revere was a commander of the Excelsior Brigade during the Battle of Chancellorsville in 1863 and was ultimately court martialed for withdrawing his troops from the field without permission or orders. His sentence was for him to be dismissed from the Army but Lincoln allowed him to resign instead. Lincoln was a relative of Paul Revere through marriage. David.

Paul Joseph Revere, Joseph Warren Revere and Edward Hutchinson Revere

Paul Joseph Revere served as a colonel in the 20th Massachusetts Regiment along with Edward Hutchinson Revere who was an assistant army surgeon. Joseph Warren Revere served as a Brigadier General in the New Jersey Volunteer Infantry.

Both Paul and Edward were captured by Confederate troops during the Battle at Ball’s Bluff in Virginia in October of 1861.

Joseph was the only one of Paul Revere’s grandsons to survive the Civil War, but he had his fair share of bad fortune as well. At the Battle of Chancellorsville in the spring of 1863, Joseph withdrew his troops from battle without orders to do so, resulting in a court martial.

Answer:
Paul Joseph Revere, Joseph Warren Revere and Edward Hutchinson Revere. Paul and Edward were captured at the Battle of Ball’s Bluff and held as POWs in Richmond before being exchanged for Confederate prisoners. They went on to fight at the Battle of Antietam where Paul was wounded and Edward was killed. Paul then went on to fight in the Battle of Gettysburg where he was killed. Joseph was the only Revere grandson to survive the war but he was court martialed and allowed to resign instead of being dismissed.
