Abbott, Joseph Carter:

15.7.1825 Concord, New Hampshire - † 8. Oktober1881 Wilmington, North Carolina; US-BrigGen; Abbott war Jurist, Journalist, Ge­schäftsmann und Politiker. Während des Sezessionskrieges diente er als Militär der Union Army; danach war er von 1868 bis 1871 republikanischer Senator für den Bundesstaat North Carolina (vgl. http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Carter_Abbott).

 

Beim Ausbruch des Sezessionskriegs war Abbott in seiner Eigenschaft als Generaladjutant von New Hampshire im April 1861 als ei­ner der Ersten bereit, Präsident Abraham Lincoln Truppen zur Verfügung zu stellen. Im Dezember 1861 wurde er Oberstleutnant des 7th New Hampshire Infantry Regiment (vgl. National Park Soldiers M549 Roll 1). Er beteiligte sich an den Schlachten von Port Royal (3.–7. November 1861), Fort Pulaski (10.–11. April 1862), St. Johns Bluff (1.–3. Oktober 1862) und Fort Wagner (18. Juli 1863). Im November 1863 wurde er Oberst des Regiments und führte es in der auf dem Boden Floridas ausgetragenen Schlacht von Olustee (20. Februar 1864) und während des Feldzugs von Bermuda Hundred (Mai 1864) in Virginia (vgl. http://de.wikipedia.Org/ wiki/Joseph_Carter_Abbott).

 

Während der ebenfalls in Virginia stattfindenden Belagerung von Petersburg (9. Juni 1864 bis 25. März 1865) kommandierte Abbott die 2. Brigade der 1. Division des X. Corps in der Schlacht bei Chaffin’s Farm (29.–30. September 1864) und den anschließen­den Gefechten bei Darbytown und New Market Roads (7. Oktober 1864). Damals fand eine Reorganisation der James-Armee statt und Abbott befehligte die 2. Brigade der 2. Division des XXIV. Corps, das dem Fort Fisher-Expeditionskorps unter dem Brigadege­neral Alfred Terry angegliedert wurde und an der Zweiten Schlacht von Fort Fisher(13.–15. Januar 1865) und der Einnahme von Wilmington (11.–22. Februar 1865) in North Carolina teilnahm. Am 25. Januar 1865 schlug Präsident Lincoln Abbotts Erhebung zum Brevet-Brigadegeneral der Freiwilligen für seinen beherzten Einsatz bei der Eroberung von Fort Fisher vor, wobei diese Beför­derung rückwirkend ab dem 15. Januar 1865 gelten sollte. Der Senat bestätigte diese Auszeichnung am 14. Februar 1865. In der End­phase des Kriegs war Abbott in Wilmington stationiert (vgl. http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Joseph_Carter_Abbott).

Abercrombie, John Joseph:

US-BrigGen; 4.3.1798 Baltimore City/Maryland - † 3.1.1877 Roslyn, NY (vgl. http://www.findagrave.com).

 

Abercrombie graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York in 1822, placing 37th of 40 (his classma­tes included future Union Generals J.K.F. Mansfield, David Hunter and George A. McCall, as well as future Confederate Gene­ral Isaac R. Trimble). He then served in the United States Army continuously from his graduation to the Civil War, and was one of the oldest field-grade officers to serve on the battlefield in the conflict. He was on garrison duty in various posts within the South and Northwest, and fought in the Seminole and Mexican Wars. When the Civil War broke out, he was one of the few full-rank Colonels in the Regular Army, being in command of the 7th United States Regular Infantry regiment. On August 31, 1861 he was commissioned Brigadier General, US Volunteers and was assigned command of the 2nd Brigade, 1st Division, IV Corps in the Army of the Poto­mac. He led the brigade throughout the 1862 Peninsular Campaign, and was wounded at the Battle of Fair Oaks (Seven Pines). He was at the head of his brigade during the Battle of Malvern Hill (July 1, 1862), where his troops helped repulse the Confederate at­tack on the Union Army. After the conclusion of the Peninsular Campaign his command was given to younger officers, and he spent the balance of the war first in command of some of the defenses in Washington, DC, then various supply depots in Virginia during the 1864 Overland Campaign. On March 13, 1865 he was brevetted Brigadier General, US Regular Army in recognition of his long ser­vice, and he retired from active duty on June 12 of that year. Despite being retired, though, he served time on court-martial duty for the next 3 years. He died in 1877 in Long Island, and is interred under a monument that has his birth date incorrect (vgl. http://www.­findagrave.com).

F, S, 9th Michigan Cavalry Regiment unter dem Namen Georg L. Acker genannt (vgl. National Park Soldiers M545 Roll 1); Co I, 1st Michigan Cavalry Regiment (vgl. National Park Soldiers M545 Roll 1).

 

He enlisted at the start of the Civil War in the 1st Michigan Cavalry Regiment, being commissioned at age 24 as Captain and com­mander of Company I on August 21, 1861. He led his command in the Battles on the Spring of 1862 Shenandoah Valley Campaign and at the Second Battle of Bull Run, rising first to Major (September 2, 1862), then Lieutenant Colonel (November 3, 1862) of the regiment. A few months later, on January 22, 1863, he was transferred to the 9th Michigan Volunteer Cavalry to help recruit the new regiment, and serve as it's Lieutenant Colonel. The unit was mustered into Federal service in May 1863, and he participated the re­giment's first field duty - the pursuit of Confederate General John Hunt Morgan's raiders in Kentucky and Ohio, in which he com­manded a portion of his unit in the Battle at Bluffington Island, Ohio. After Morgan was captured, the unit joined with General Am­brose Burnside's forces in East Tennessee, where is engaged in continual scouting and skirmishing. On November 14, 1863 Lieuten­ant Co­lonel Acker was wounded at Bean's Station, Tennessee, and missed a large portion of his unit's subsequent service, but returned to lead it as a full Colonel in the Spring of 1864 (receiving his promotion on November 30, 1863). After helping to inflict a loss to the forces of General Morgan (who had escaped the Federals' hold) at Cynthiana, Kentucky, he continued to fight in lower Kentucky and Tennessee until October 1864, when the unit was detailed to General William T. Sherman's Army fighting in Georgia. He participated in the March to the Sea and the March up the Carolinas, where he finished out the war. He was brevetted Brigadier General, US Vol­unteers on March 13, 1865 for "gallant and soldierly conduct under all circumstances during the East Tennessee and Atlanta cam­paigns, especially at Morristown, East Tennessee in December 1863, at Bean Station, and for conspicuous gallantry at Cynthiana, in June 1864". After the war he became a successful Hotel Keeper, and died in Kalamazoo, Michigan in 1879 (vgl. http://www.findagra­ve.com).

US-Botschafter in Großbritannien (1861-68) während des Bürgerkrieges, 1807-1886; Sohn des früheren Präsidenten John Quincy Adams, Vater von Charles Francis Adams jr. Adams served as the United States ambassador to Great Britain throughout the war, and his efforts there have been compared in importance to many military victories. Son and grandson of two former Presidents, Adams has shown some interest in a political career - having even run for Vice President in 1848 - but by background and temperament he was never that comfortable with the rough-and-ready ways of the young American democracy. As a moderate Republican opposed to slavery, however, Adams was needed by Lincoln, who put him in exactly the right post (even though Adams did not report being too impressed after their first and only meeting in April 1861). Adams had spent much of his youth in Europe, including two years in an English school, and his more cosmopolitan manner (he was as comfortable speaking French as English) allowed him to get on well with the British leaders.

 

Adams' primary goal was to make sure that England in particular, and Europe in general, did not give formal recognition to the Con­federacy and certainly did not provide aid. This was no easy task, as there was considerable support among many British, especially among the influential, for the South's position - not for slavery as such but for the rights of a group of states to conduct their affairs as they saw fit.

 

Lincoln's minister to Great Britain, Adams faced a number of problems in keeping the Peace between the two great nations, but few where more volatile than the issue of the commerce raiders built or fitted out in Britain for the Confederate Navy. He kept his agents everywhere looking for such vessels before they put in sea, and even arranged for photographs to be taken so that the raiders might later be identified. But Adam proved quite unsuccessful in the early years of the war, and one raider after another eluded his grasp (Davis / Wiley, Photographic History, a.a.O., S. 135)

 

By his cautious, reasonable and sophisticated diplomacy, Adams managed to get Great Britain to observe the naval blockade that the Union had set up around the Southern ports. Meanwhile, Confederate agents in Britain were buying, building and outfitting ships, and Adams was frustrated in his early efforts to stop this. But by late 1862 he felt confident enough to lay down an ultimatum: either stop providing ships to the Confederacy or the North would engage in open warfare against British interests. The British government thereupon effectively stopped the activities of the Confederate agents. And to the extent that Adams helped to move Britain around to supporting the Union cause, he also helped to keep the rest of Europe in at least a neutral role.

 

After the war ended, Adams stayed on in England till the fall of 1868 and began the negotiations over Britain's reimbursing the US for losses inflicted on Northern commerce by the Confederate ships that had come out of England. Returning to the US, Adams then played a crucial role in the treaty and arbitration that settled these so called "Alabama claims".

Pro­moted to Major (October 22, 1861) and Lieutenant Colonel (September 22, 1862), he was with his unit during the June-July 1863 Gettysburg Campaign. On the 2nd Day of the Battle of Gettysburg (June 2, 1862), he was wounded in the regiment's celebrated and suicidal charge into attacking Confederates. Upon his recovery from his wound, rejoined the regiment, and was frequently in com­mand. Mustered out when his term of service expired on May 4, 1864, two months later he rejoined the Union Army with a com­mission of Major on July 15, 1864. Assigned to command Hatch's Independent Battalion of Minnesota Cavalry, he led it in the opera­tions against the Northwest Indians. Promoted to Lieutenant Colonel on September 5, 1864, he was brevetted Brigadier General, US Volunteers on March 13, 1865 "for meritorious services", and finally mustered out on June 22, 1866 (vgl. http://www. findagrave.­com).

James was a LtCol. in the 26th NC Regiment. Adams answered the call of duty to the South at twenty-three years of age serving as an officer for the 26th North Carolina. In the spring of 1861 Colonel Oscar Rand came into Holly Springs recruiting all the eligible men, youngest being 15 and the oldest being 55. Members of the 26th NC advanced as far as any other of the Confederate troops that took part in Pickett's Charge, and like the rest, they paid a terrible price for their bravery and determination. Only 90 soldiers from the 26th were able to make their way back to the Confederate lines on Seminary Ridge. The Battle of Gettysburg claimed 88 % of the re­giment, the highest percentage of causalities for any regiment, North or South, in any battle. James T. Adams was wounded at Mal­vern Hill and seriously wounded at Gettysburg, he had the honor of paroling the Regiment at Appomattox. Of the 2,000 men serving in the 26th during the course of the war, only 131 were left to collect their paroles. In his civilian life after the war, James was one of twenty-five original board of trustees of the Holly Springs Academy in 1854.

Adams, John:

zweiter Präsident der USA; 1735-1826; Vater von Präsident John Quincy *Adams. Unter dem ersten Präsidenten George Washington (Amtseinführung am 30.4.1789) war Adams Vizepräsident (vgl. Heideking: Geschichte der USA, a.a.O., S. 75). Präsident der USA 1797-1801.

 

Adams vertrat innerhalb der patriotischen Bewegung der 1770er Jahre den konservativ-aufklärerischen Flügel, der im Sinne von Montesquies 'De l'esprit des lois' die Regierungsgewalten und sozialen Kräfte sorgsam ausbalancieren wollte, während der radikal-re­publikanische Flügel besonderen Wert auf die Bürgerbeteiligung und die Kontrolle der Regierenden legte (vgl. Heideking, Geschich­te der USA, a.a.O., S. 44) und die Idee eines lockeren Staatenbundes vertrat (vgl. Heideking, a.a.O., S. 72 ff.). .

 

 

Adams, John:

CS-BrigGen; 1.7.1825 Nashville/Tenn - † 30.11.1864, gefallen im Battle of Franklin/Tenn.

 

Adams was an officer in the United States Army. USMA West Point 1845; dann 2nd Lieutenant of the First US Dragoons; Teilnahme am Me­xican War und was brevetted for gallantry at the Battle of Santa Cruz de Rosales. Afterwards Service on the Indian frontier, ri­sing to the rank of Captain. With the onset of the American Civil War, he resigned his commission and joined the Confederate States Army, rising to the rank of brigadier general before being killed in action (vgl. Encyclopedia of the Confederacy, a.a.O., Bd. 1, S. 1).

 

Adams was born in Nashville, Tennessee, to Irish immigrant parents. He graduated from the United States Military Academy in 1846, ranking 25th in his class. He was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the1st Dragoons, serving under Capt. Philip Kearny. Adams was brevettedfor gallantry during the Mexican-American War at the Battle of Santa Cruz de Rosales. After the war, Adams served on the western frontier, primarily in California. He was subsequently promoted to first lieutenantand captain. As a lieutenant colonel in the state militia, he was aide-de-camp to the Governor of Minnesota in 1853 (vgl. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Adam).

 

With the secession of Tennessee, Adams resigned his commission in the United States Army in early 1861 and joined the Confederate Army not long afterward as a captain in the cavalry. He was commissioned a colonel in 1862, and a brigadier general in December of that same year, replacing the late Lloyd Tilghman in charge of his brigade of infantry. Adams served entirely in the Western Theater and was commended in several official reports for his leadership. He was particularly conspicuous during the Atlanta Campaign, where he again displayed personal bravery as well as a talent for battlefield tactics. His brigade was selected to lead the advance of John Bell Hood's army into Tennessee (vgl. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Adam).

 

Adams was killed at the Second Battle of Franklin in 1864, one of six Confederate generals to perish in the defeat. An Indiana colo­nel who witnessed his death later wrote:

„General Adams rode up to our works and, cheering his men, made an attempt to leap his horse over them. The horse fell upon the top of the embankment and the general was caught under him, pierced with [nine] bullets. As soon as the charge was repulsed, our men sprang over the works and lifted the horse, while others dragged the general from under him. He was perfectly conscious and knew his fate. He asked for water, as all dying men do in battle as the life-blood drips from the body. One of my men gave him a can­teen of water, while another brought an armful of cotton from an old gin near by and made him a pillow. The general gallantly than­ked them, and in answer to our expressions of sorrow at his sad fate, he said, 'It is the fate of a soldier to die for his country,' and ex­pired“ (vgl. Confederate Veteran, June 1897).

US-Captain, 19th Massachusetts Infantry Regiment; Adams was born October 6, 1841 in Groveland, Massachusetts and when the Civil War broke out, he enlisted as a private in Major Ben Perley Poore's Rifle Battalion, a unit that was later folded into the 19th Massachusetts Infantry Regiment. When the 19th departed the state on March 1, 1861, Adams was a Corporal in Company A. He ser­ved with the 19th in the Peninsula Campaign and at the Battle of Antietam. While serving as a Second Lieutenant in Company I, he was one of 18 Union soldiers who received the Medal of Honor for valor at the Battle of Fredericksburg. Adams recovered the regimental and national colors as a corporal and a lieutenant carrying them fell mortally wounded. With a flag in each hand he ad­vanced, and the regiment was reformed on him. He was one of seven soldiers from the 19th Regiment who received the Medal of Honor during the war (vgl. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_G._B._Adams).

 

Later promoted to Captain, Adams commanded Company I at Chancellorsvilleand Gettysburg, where he was severely wounded on July 2, 1863. His convalescence was relatively brief and he was able to return and fight at The Wilderness, Spotsylvania and Cold Harbor. He and the entire regiment were captured near Cold Harbor on June 22, 1864 and Adams was held at Libby Prison in Richmond, Virginia. He was also imprisoned at Macon, Georgia and Charleston, South Carolina, where he and other offi­cers were placed on Morris Island in an attempt to stop naval bombardment by the Union. Moved to Columbia, he and a comrade att­empted to escape but were eventually captured. He was held for a total of nine months (vgl. http://en.wikipedia.org/ wiki/ John_G._B._Adams).

Adams, Nehemia:

Pastor der Congregational Church in Boston. Reverend Adams earlier provoked the wrath of abolitionists by publishing a mild, con­ciliatory work entitled "A South Side View of Slavery" following a brief visit to the South in 1854 (erschienen Boston, 1854). So ve­hement was the reaction of the northern press that Adams felt compelled to respond to these attacks by penning "The Sable Cloud", which appeared in 1861 (vgl. Ruffin, Diary II 21 Anm 11). Verheiratet mit Sarah Brackett (aus Mass.), die mehrere Jahre als Lehrerin bei den Eltern von Edward Porter *Alexander beschäftigt war (vgl. Alexander: Fighting for the Confederacy, a.a.O., S. 5, 7 und Anm. 4 S. 556); sie verbrachte aufgrund ihrer angegriffenen Gesundheit einen Winter in der 1850er Jahren auf der Plantage von Alexan­der's Eltern (vgl. Alexander: Fighting for the Confederacy, a.a.O., S. 7).

 

Am Ende der 1. Manuskript-Bandes von Edward P. Alexander's Erinnerungen befindet sich eine handschriftliche Anmerkung von Mary Clifford Alexander Hull zu Adams (vgl. Gallagher: Anm. zu: Alexander: Fighting for the Confederacy, a.a.O., Anm. 11 S. 557): "Dr. Adams's first book was A Southside View of Slavery. But afterwards he published another called 'The Sable Cloud,' & that opens with a letter from Sister H. to Mother, telling of the death of the child of her cook (Cora) & how she & he went to the cem. to select a lot to bury it. Father & M. were North & Dr. A. went to N.Y. to see them. He was shown this letter, not supposing it would be consi­dered anything unusual. But after his return home he wrote & begged to be given the letter with permission to use it as he pleased - & he opens his book with it. He wrote after a visit to A.R.L.'s in SaV: IN 54: She (Sarah Brackett) died in Nov. 54. M.C.H."
