Kane, ++++:

im Juni 1861 Marshall in Baltimore; seine prosüdliche Sympathien veranlaßten ihn bald nach einem Besuch des 2nd Wisconsin Re­giment, sich der Konföderation als Offizier anzuschließen (vgl. Gaff: If this is War, a.a.O., S. 132)

Karge, Joseph:

US-LtCol; 1st New Jersey Cavalry. Am 29.7.1862 ordnete LtCol Joseph Karge, 1st New Jersey Cavalry, von Elm House, Va. aus eine Aufklärung mit 150 Mann unter Führung von Major Myron H. Beaumont in Richtung Orange Court House an den Rapidan River bei Madison Mills, mit dem Befehl, den Fluß nicht zu überqueren Beaumont vertrieb die an der Furt stehenden CS-Posten (vgl. Karge's Report OR 12 [2] S. 110; Beaumont's Report OR 12 [2] S. 111). Am 7.8.1862 stieß Owen Jones auf Befehl von BrigGen Bayard mit seinem Regiment Richtung Madison Court House vor, um seine Postenlinie, die westlich des Roberton River stand und von CS-Trup­pen angegriffen wurde, zu verstärken (vgl. Karte bei Krick: Cedar Mountain, a.a.O., S. 18). Gleichzeitig stieß BrigGen Bayard mit der 1st New Jersey Cavalry unter Führung von LtCol Joseph *Karge und Major Myron *Beaumont in zwei Angriffskeilen auf Bar­nett's Ford am Rapidan vor. Hierbei stieß die US-Cavalry auf starke CS-Kräfte der Division Ewell, deren Vorhut aus Robertson's Ca­valry bestand (vgl. BrigGen Bayard's Report OR 12 [2] S. 92-93). BrigGen Bayard ordnete den Rückzug an, wobei die US-Cavalry das verzögerte Gefecht führte. Auch Jones' Truppen wurden über den Robertson River zurückgenommen. Auf Befehl Bayard's ließ Jones die Brücke über den Robertson River zerstören (vgl. Bayard's Report OR 12 [2] S. 92).

 

Karge led the 1st New Jersey Cavalry in the Virginia Campaigns and then trained and led the 2nd New Jersey Cavalry in Tennessee.

Weitere teilnehmende Offiziere waren Captain Phi­lip St. George *Cooke (Co. F), Lt. John Love (Co. C), Lt William B. Franklin von den Topographical Engineers und Lt Richard S. *Ewell (vgl. Pfanz: Ewell, a.a.O., S. 44). Teilnahme am Mexikokrieg. Einarmiger Kriegsheld des Mexiko-Krieges (vgl. Gibbon: Per­sonal Recollections, a.a.O., S. 20).

Kearny war einer der am besten trainierten Offiziere auf US-Seite (vgl. Nevins: Col Wainw­right, a.a.O., S. 35). Im Frühjahr 1862 BrigGen und Brigadekommandeur in Franklin's Division Army of the Potomac während der Peninsular Campaign. Er zeichnete sich erneut aus und wurde zum MajGen ernannt (vgl. Nevins: Col Wainwright, a.a.O., S. 42). Ge­fallen im Battle of 2nd Bull Run am 30.8.1862.

 

Captain James H. Haynes, 55th Virginia regiment, says he was on the skirmish line at Chantilly, in the edge of a brushy place with a clearing in front. It was raining heavily and growing dark when Kearny rode suddenly upon the line, and asked what troops they were. Seeing his mistake, he turned and started across the open ground to escape, but was fired on and killed. His body was brought into the lines and was recognized by General A. P. Hill, who said, sorrowfully, "Poor Kearny! He deserved a better death than this." The next day General Lee ordered that the body be carried to the Federal lines, and in a note to General Pope he said: " The body of General Philip Kearny was brought from the field last night, and he was reported dead. I send it forward under a flag of truce, thin­king the possession of his remains may be a consolation to his family." A C. R. According to General A. P. Hill, Kearny fell in front of Thomas's brigade, but he also states that Brockenbrough's brigade held the skirmish line, and to this Captain Haynes's and Lieuten­ant Healy's regiment, the 55th Virginia, belonged."

Prisoner of War:

aus http://ironbrigader.com/2011/03/06/capture-escape-captain-john-a-kellogg-iron-brigades-6th-wisconsin-infantry/):

 

On May 5th, while on skirmish duty at the opening of the Battle of the Wilderness, Kellogg was knocked unconscious, probably from an artillery shell explosion. Disoriented when he regained consciousness, he wandered through the densely wooded battlefield and was captured by members of the 13th Georgia Infantry. Kellogg and other prisoners captured at the Wilderness were marched to Gord­onsville, Virginia, where they boarded freight cars and went by rail to Lynchburg, Virginia. At the prison in Lynchburg, Kellogg and about 200 other officers were housed in a 20 by 50 foot room. “The floors of the building were filthy, and the ceilings swarmed with vermin,” Kellogg recalled, adding “the building was only a fit habitation for the rats that infested it”. Other than the prison buil­ding itself, Kellogg regarded the treatment at Lynchburg as being relatively decent with a camp commander who was “humane” and with food that was of good quality but limited in quantity. The prisoners had begun construction of a tunnel to escape, but before it could be completed, they were taken to Danville, Virginia.

 

Kellogg described the two story brick building at the Danville prison as being “filthy beyond description”. Food consisted of pea soup and cornbread, of such poor quality that “the very recollection is nauseating”. The stay in Danville was brief, and once again the prisoners were loaded in freight cars and shipped out, this time to Macon, Georgia. Conditions were worse here than in the first two places. Kellogg was shocked at the appearance of the prisoners in the camp. “Who were these gaunt skeletons, clothed in rags, cover­ed with dirt … wild, eager eyes were peering into our faces — eyes from which had departed all expression except that of hopeless misery.” The approximately five acre camp held 1500 prisoners, many of whom were without shelter. Prisoners were issued a pint of corn meal and a teaspoon of salt per day, with a slice of bacon or some peas every second or third day. With prisoner exchanges sus­pended by the Federal government, the incarcerated faced two choices: they could stay in the camp and face death by starvation and exposure, or they could try to escape. Kellogg discovered that construction of a tunnel had already begun, and joined in the excavati­on.

 

The tunnel had been dug about 90 feet, with about 30 feet left to go, when one of the Union prisoners told the Confederate guards about the tunnel. The betrayer was removed before the prisoners could exact revenge. The situation was becoming desperate, with starvation a very real possibility. At one point, Kellogg caught a rat and made a soup with some wormy peas, a beef bone, and onion peelings.  Another tunnel was started, but before it got very far, the Macon prisoners were sent by rail to Charleston, South Carolina.

 

A few miles outside of Charleston, Kellogg and five others jumped off the train under cover of darkness, in the hope of reaching Uni­on lines at Port Royal, South Carolina. Without map or compass, the six made their way through alligator infested swamps only to be recaptured by a slave catcher with bloodhounds. They were taken to Charleston and imprisoned there. After spending some weeks confined in the Charleston prison, the prisoners were offered a deal. They would be provided better quarters within the city in ex­change for a pledge not to escape. Realizing that escape from their current location was unlikely, almost all, including Kellogg, ac­cepted the offer. They were quartered comfortably in a hospital building and grounds, and were well fed. The one downside to this lo­cation was that Union forces had been shelling Charleston for some time, and the occasional mortar or artillery round would land nearby.

 

Kellogg might have stayed in Charleston for the rest of the war, but a Yellow Fever outbreak had the Confederate authorities empty­ing out the prisons to help prevent the disease from spreading. About the first of October, the prisoners were ordered to Columbia, South Carolina. Kellogg and four companions agreed to make an escape attempt while en route to Columbia. This time, they had a map and a compass to aid them. They departed on October 5th for Columbia. The plan was to jump from the train at night and head for Union lines between Chattanooga, Tennessee and Atlanta. With four armed guards stationed near the doors of the freight cars, es­cape might prove fatal unless the guards were disarmed. A plan was devised for that. The guards relaxed as the trip continued into the night, and after getting tired of standing, sat down in the doorway with their feet hanging down, and with their muskets beside them. Kellogg’s group removed the percussion caps from the muskets, disarming them. Kellogg gave a signal, and the men jumped from the rapidly moving train. The group traveled mostly at night, resting well off the roads during the day. Two became separated early in the trek, and unable to find them, Kellogg and the other two continued on without them. They traveled for several days, at one point eluding pursuit by bloodhounds, until they arrived at the Savannah River. They would need help getting across the river, since one man couldn’t swim. Kellogg decided to take a chance and approached a slave cabin on a nearby plantation. Would they help or turn them in? They were more than willing to help. They fed the men and gave them five days worth of food to take along, secured a boat and ferried them across the river, and gave them information on the movements and positions of Union forces. “They were faithful to every trust imposed upon them by us, even to the imperiling of their lives. They were not only willing to divide their final crust with us, but to give us the last morsel of food in their possession” wrote a grateful John Kellogg. They continued on into Georgia, finally encountering some Georgia Unionists who gave them shelter and escorted them to General William T. Sherman’s lines near Calhoun, Georgia. Encountering a Union army outpost guard, Kellogg asked what regiment he was from. “The First Wisconsin Cavalry”  was the reply and Kellogg and his men went wild with celebration. They had successfully crossed three hundred miles to safety. And the two men that had gotten separated from the group early on had made it out too, taking a more northern route and reaching Union li­nes at Chattanooga.

Kelton, John Cunningham:

US-Col; 24.6.1828 Delaware County/PA - † 15.6.1893 Washington; S. v. Robert Keltin und Margaretta Ross (vgl. findagrave.com); USMA 1851 (26/42); Inf.-Adj. Gen. He served on the frontier and taught at West Point before becoming Chief Purchasing Comsy. at St. Louis 11.5.1861-5.8.1861. Named Capt. Asst. Gen. 3.8.1861; he served in the Depts. Of the West and of the Mo. until 11.3.1862, when he went to the Dept. of the Miss. As Col 9th Missouri Infantry Regiment 19.9.1861 (resigned) 12.3.1862) and Col. Add. A.D.A. 4.1.1862, he was at Corinth and served as Halleck's Asst. Adj. Gen. 11.7.1862-1.7.1865. Continuing in the Regular Army, he war brevetted four times for war service, including BrigGen USA. He retired in 1892 as BriogGen USA, then Adj.Gen. (vgl. Boatner: civil War Dictionary, a.a.O., S. 451.452).

 

Lt. Kelton war 1859 in West Point in charge of the Dept. of Fencing, Target Firing (vgl. Alexander: Figh­ting for the Confederacy, a.a.O., S. 13); anschließend von Juni bis Herbst 1859 auf Studienreise in Europa; Assistant Adjutant Gene­ral unter Halleck in Wa­shington (vgl. Hitchcock, Marching with Sherman, a.a.O., S. 25; (vgl. Porter: Campaining with Grant, a.a.O., S. 17). Im Sommer 1862 war Kelton Stabsoffizier im War Department in Washington. Er war persönlich bekannt mit Charles Francis *Adams jr und un­terrichtete diesen Ende August 1862 über die Stimmung gegen MajGen John Pope, was Adams in seinem Brief vom 27.8.1862 (ge­schrieben in *Willard's Hotel in Washington) an seinen Vater Charles Francis *Adams, dem US-Botschafter in London, treffend wie­der gibt (zitiert bei Sears: Landscape turned Red, a.a.O., S. 1; Ford, Worthington Chauncey (ed): Cycle of Adams Letters, 1861-1865, vol. I, S. 177-78).

 

Kelton wurde nach der Schlacht von 2nd Bull Run vom War Department in Washington beauftragt, die Situation der Truppen Pope's zu erkunden und fand die Situation „very different“ von den Berichten Popes. The President should know, said Kelton, that all the roads leading to to the capital were clogged with stragglers, perhaps 30.000 in number. Furthermore, these troops, and their officers, still standing with their commands were severly demoralized (vgl. Sears: Controversies & Commanders, a.a.O., S.87).

Kennedy, Robert Cobb:

CS-Captain; John Hunt Morgan's Cavalry (vgl. Horan: Confederate Agent, a.a.O., S. 8). Später CS-Agent. Kennedy stammt aus Loui­siana; in West Point Kamerad von E. P. Alexander; aus West Point entlassen wegen nicht ausreichender Bewertung am 7.1.1855. Kennedy versuchte zusammen mit anderen CS-Agenten New York in Brand zu setzen (vgl. Alexander: Fighting for the Confederacy, a.a.O., S. 8/9); Kennedy war bei Kriegsausbruch - wie Alexander (vgl. Alexander: Fighting for the Confederacy, a.a.O., S. 8) notiert: Soldat "somewhere in our western army & he was taken prisoner, but managed to escape from the Northern prison where he was con­fined & got across to Canada."

 

Anm. zu CS-Geheimdienst Operationen in Canada:

Confederates developed a number of clandestine assets in Canada, initially to support the passage of couriers and other tasks. In 1864 the Confederacy established what amounted to a field office capable of developing and carrying out complex clandestine operations. Jacob *Thompson, the chief, reported to Benjamin and Davis, but he also had the support of a War Department team under the con­trol of eit, a.a.O., S. 751; Kinchen, Oscar A.: Confederate Operations in Canada and the North, North Quincy, Mass., 1970).

 

Alexander berichtet weiter: "While there je joined in a wild, absurd & utterly indefensible scheme to burn N.Y. City gotten up by some Confederate refugees there - on their own responsibility & and without any authority or countenance from Confederate authori­ty. Kennedy & one or two others went to N.Y, & on a certain day Kennedy started a fire in Barnum's Museum on Broadway not far from the Astor House & the others started fires in one or two hotels. All of the fires were soon discovered & extinguished, but it was known that they were a Confederate effort to burn the city & large rewards were offered for those concerned in it. Kennedy had made his escape back to Canada & stayed at Niagara Falls. Some detective went there & managed to get into his confidence & roomed with him & last persuaded Kennedy one day to walk across the suspension bridge with him. He had officers on the lookout with war­rants & no sooner did poor Kennedy set foot on U.S. soil than he was arrested. He was tried, sentenced & hung in old Fort Lafayette." (vgl. Alexander: Fighting for the Confederacy, a.a.O., S. 8/9)

 

Kennedy wurde am 25.3.1865 hingerichtet (vgl. Markle, Spies and Spymasters, a.a.O., S. 93)

Kershaw’s Brigade nahm teil am Battle of Antietam (Sharpsburg) und South Mountain (14.-17.9.1862), wobei die Brigade nur in Harper's Ferry eingesetzt war. Während Jacksons Angriff auf Harper's Ferry 13.-17.9.1862 griff Kershaw's Brigade die strategisch wichtigen Maryland Heights nördlich von Harper's Ferry an (vgl. Cannan, Antietam, a.a.O., S. 76 ff.). Die Brigade umfaßte 1862 folgende Regimenter:

- 2nd South Carolina Infantry (Col. John D. Kennedy)

- 3rd South Carolina Infantry (Col. James D. Nance)

- 7th South Carolina Infantry (Col. D. Wyatt Aiken)

- 8th South Carolina Infantry (Col. John W. Henagen)

 

Während der Gettysburg Campaign gehörte Kershaw's Brigade zum I. Army Corps Longstreet, 1st Division (McLaws's Division) MajGen Lafayette und umfaßte folgende Regimenter:

- 2nd South Carolina Col J. D. Kennedy (w), LtCol F. Gaillard

- 3rd South Carolina Major R. C. Maffett, Col J. D. Nance

- 7th South Carolina Col D. Wyatt Aiken

- 8th South Carolina Col J. W. Henagan

- 15th South Carolina Col W. G. De Saussure (k), Major William M. Gist

- 3rd South Carolina Battalion LtCol W. G. Rice

 

Die Brigade kam am 2.7.1863 ins Gefecht und bildete die Spitzenbrigade Longstreet's bei dessen Vorrücken gegen den linken Flügel der US-Front bei Peach Orchard an der Emmitsburg Road (vgl. Penny / Laine: Struggle for the Round Tops, a.a.O., S. 28 mit Karte S. 29). Der linke Flügel der Brigade stützte sich auf die Emmitsburg Road und erstreckte sich in Front über die Warwick Ridge in Front auf Peach Orchard. Als Kershaw's Männer aus dem Wald bei Warwick Ridge nach Osten vorstießen, erkannte Kershaw zu seiner Überraschung, daß auf seiner linken ungeschützten Flanke sich überraschend US-Truppen befanden. Es handelte sich hierbei um die auf Grund eines Führungsfehlers zu weit nach vorn gezogene III. US-Corps unter MajGen Daniel E. Sickles. Lee's Angriffplan sah einen Ablenkungsangriff auf die US-Nordfront bei Cemetary Ridge durch das Corps Ewell vor, einen weiteren zur Ablenkung ge­führten zentralen Angriff auf die US-Front durch Corps von A. P. Hill, während gleichzeitig Longstreet auf den schwachen linken US-Flügel bei Peach Orchard und die Höhen nördlich von Big Round Top angesetzt war. Dieser angriffsplan mußte nun in letzter Mi­nute, wegen der unerwarteten Aufstellung des III.US-Corps Sickles' geändert werden. Anstelle eines Angriffs durch die links einge­setzte Division McLaws mit der Brigade Kershaw, erfolgte nunmehr der Angriff durch die rechts eingesetzte Division Hood, der sich im Echelon McLaws Division anschließen sollte (vgl. Penny / Laine: Battle for the Round Tops, a.a.O., S. 26-30).

Key, John J.:

US-Major; Bruder von Col. Thomas M. *Key aus McClellan's Stab (vgl. Sears: Controversies & Commanders, a.a.O., S. 134-135).

 

Major Key hatte nach der Schlacht von Antietam gegenüber Levi C. *Turner, judge advocate at the War Department in Washington auf die Frage, warum McClellan die bei Antietam geschlagene Lee's Army of the Northern Virginia nicht verfolgt und endgültig ver­nichtet habe, geantwortet: „The object is that neither army shall get much advantage of the other; that both shall be kept in the field till they are exhausted, when we will make a compromise and save slavery“ (vgl. Sears: Controversies & Commanders, a.a.O., S. 134-135). Diese Bemerkung wurde Präsident Lincoln berichtet, dem wiederholt Gerüchte über eine bevorstehende Revolte der Offi­ziere der Army of the Potomac zugetragen worden waren. Durch Col. Thomas M. *Key aus McClellan's Stab waren Gerüchte über eine Conspiracy gegen die Lincoln Regierung in die Presse lanciert worden. Lincoln suchte nun ein Exempel zu statuieren und ord­nete daraufhin die Entlassung von Masjor John J. Key an, wegen „silly treasonable talk, because I feared it was staff talk & I wanted an example“. No doubt an injustice was done to the hapless Major Key, but as a signal to the officers of the Army of the Potomac it was unmistacable (vgl. Sears: Controversies & Commanders, a.a.O., S. 135).

 

 

Key, Thomas J.:

Artillery Officer; aus Helena / Arkansas; Vorkriegszeit: Journalist und Zeitungsverleger in Helena; während seines Ur­laubs 1864 gelang Key ein Besuch bei seiner Familie, die im US-besetzten Helena lebte. Key beschreibt in seinem Tagebuch die Ge­fahren dieser Reise und sein mehrmaliges knappes Entkommen (vgl. Castel: Decision in the West, a.a.O., S. 34). 1864 war Key Bat­teriechef der Arkansas Battery, Cleburne's Division (vgl. Castel: Decision in the West, a.a.O., S. 89; B & L, vol. IV, a.a.O., S. 290), Key's Battery (vgl. Castel: Decision in the West, a.a.O., S. 106). Die Battery gehörte zu 1864 Hotchkiss’ Battalion, Hardee’s Corps, Army of Tennessee (vgl. B & L, vol.

Key, Thomas M.:

US-Col; Vorkriegszeit Attorney und Judge in Cincinnati, er bat US-Finanzminister Chase am 11.1.1862 um Rat vor einem Gespräch mit Gen McClellan (vgl. Chase: Diary, a.a.O., S. 59/60); dann aide de Camps von Gen McClellan; nach der Antietam Campaign von Präsident Lincoln scharf getadelt und aus der Armee ausgeschlossen, weil Key geäußert hatte "that it would have been impolitic and injudicious to have destroyed the enemy army" (vgl. Chase: Diary, a.a.O., S. 281 Anm. 24).

 

Col Key hörte von der Unzufriedenheit der Offiziere der Army of the Potomac mit der Regierung in Washington, der vorgeworfen wurde, durch mangelnde Unterstützung McClellan's dessen Strategie während der Peninsular Campaign unterlaufen zu haben. Key berichtete seinem früheren Anwaltsfreund und damaligen Korrespondent ner New York Tribune, „that a plan to countermarch to Wa­shington aynd intimidate the President had been seriously duscussed the night before of members of McClellan's staff“ (vgl.

West Point 1832; ab Nov. 1861 Divisionskommandeur Keyes Division (vgl. Rhodes, Elisha Hunt:: All for the Union, a.a.O., S. 40). Während McClellan's Peninsular Campaign im Frühjahr 1862 befehligte Keyes den linken Flügel beim Vormarsch von Fort Monroe gegen die Verteidigungslinie *Magruder's vor Yorktown. Keyes Corps ging über die einzige Hauptstraße auf der Peninsular vor ge­gen Lee's Mill, wo die Straße den Warwick River überquerte und die CS-Hauptverteidi­gungslinie kreuzte (vgl. Dowdey, Seven Days, a.a.O., S. 44-45 mit Karte S. 44). Keyes führt das IV. Korps der Potomac-Armee in der Schlacht von Seven Pines (Photo in Längin, a.a.O., S. 102).

 

Civil War Union Major General. He commanded the IV Corps of the Union Army of the Potomac during the first half of the Ameri­can Civil War. The son of a renowned physician and surgeon, he moved with his family to Kennebec County, Maine as a youth. He decided to pursue a military career and enrolled in the US Military Academy at West Point, New York, graduating 10th out of a class of 45 in 1832, and was commissioned a brevet second lieutenant in the 3rd US Artillery. He served in Charleston Harbor during the nullification crisis of 1832 to 1833, and served as an aide to General Winfield Scott from 1837 to 1841. After being promoted to the rank of captain in November 1841, he served in various garrisons until 1844 and then functioned as an artillery and cavalry instructor at US Military Academy. In 1854 he was sent with the US 3rd Artillery Regiment around Cape Horn to California and served on the Pacific frontier in garrison duty and Native American campaigns in the Northwest. Promoted to the rank of major in October 1858, he returned to Washington DC near the end of 1859 and became General Winfield Scott's military secretary from January until April 1861. In May 1861, after the outbreak of the Civil War, he was promoted to the rank of colonel of the 11th U.S. Infantry, serving briefly on the staff of New York Governor Edwin D. Morgan until June 25, 1861, overseeing that state's raising of militia. On July 21, 1861, at the First Battle of Bull Run, he commanded the 1st Brigade, 1st Division (Tyler), and then led Keyes's Brigade, before assuming command of a division from November 1861 until March 13, 1862. In August 1861 he was promoted to the rank of briga­dier general of volunteers with date of rank of May 17, 1861, the third-ranking brigadier general in the Army. He was then given command of IV Corps, leading it from its inception on March 3, 1862, until its discontinuation on August 1, 1863. He saw action at Lee's Mill, Yorktown, Bottom's Bridge, Savage's Station, Seven Pines (Fair Oaks), Charles City Cross Roads, Malvern Hill, and Har­rison's Landing. For gallantry at Fair Oaks, Keyes received the brevet of brigadier general in the regular army. On March 12, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln nominated Keyes for promotion to the grade of major general, U.S. Volunteers, to rank from May 5, 1862 and the US Senate confirmed the award on March 13, 1862. In addition to the IV Corps, he commanded the Yorktown District, VII Corps, and the division at Suffolk. Among Keyes's other military actions were the raid to White House, Virginia, on January 7, 1863, and the expedition to West Point, Virginia, on May 7, 1863. During the Gettysburg Campaign in July 1863, he fell afoul of General John Adams Dix's strategic plan to demonstrate heavily against Richmond in order to divert Confederate reinforcements from Gene­ral Robert E. Lee's army in Pennsylvania. He retreated from a position near what is now Tallysville, Virginia, in the face of what Dix deemed to be inferior forces, so Dix had Keyes removed from command. He requested an investigation of the charges that led to his removal but it was never granted. He then served on various boards and commissions, including the board for retiring disabled offi­cers from July 1863, until his resignation and retirement from the US Army in May 1864, with 32 years of continued military service. Following his retirement, he moved to San Francisco, California where he became financially successful and prominent. He was president of a Mexican gold mining company from 1867 to 1869, and vice president of the California vine-culture society from 1868 to 1872. He also was engaged in the savings and loan business. He was the author of "The Rear Guard at Malvern Hill" as part of The Century Company's "Battles and Leaders of the Civil War" series, as well as "Fifty Years' Observation of Men and Events" (1884), later reprinted as "Fighting Indians in Washington Territory" (1988). His work "From West Point to California" was published posthumously in 1950. While on a trip to Europe with his wife, he died in Nice, France, at age of 85 (vgl. http://www. findagrave.com).

King, Rufus:

US-BrigGen; Westpoint-Absolvent Jahrgang 1833; King schied auf eigenen Wunsch aus der Armee aus und begann eine Zeitungs­karriere. Er war im März 1861 designierter Botschafter für die "Pontifical States", verzichtete aber auf die Position in der Absicht, als General für Wisconsin im Bürgerkrieg zu dienen. Er wurde am 17.5.1861 zum BrigGen ernannt (Anm. Gaff: If this is War, a.a.O., S. 86 erwähnt bereits am 16.5.1861 "General Rufus King, commander of the First Brigade of Wisconsin active Militia") und war ab Ok­tober 1861 Kommandeur der *Iron Brigade (vgl. Nolan MilAmerik5 S. IX); zum Divisionskommandeur von King's Division am 13.3.1862 befördert.

 

King war im Juli 1862 Divisionskommandeur im Corps McDowell's, Pope's neu aufgestellte Army of Virginia; seine Division stand bei Fredericksburg und bedrohte, rechts neben Pope eingesetzt, mit diesem zusammen die wichtige Virginia Central Railroad (vgl. Freeman, Lee's Lieutenants, a.a.O., vol. 2, S. 1). Pope gab den Befehl, King's Cavalry zur Zerstörung der Virginia Central Railroad zwischen Richmond und dem Shenandoah Valley (vgl. Stackpole: From Cedar Mountain, a.a.O., S. 28).

 

Er ordnete am 22.7.1862 eine Cavalry Aufklärung unter Col. Judson H. *Kilpatrick gegen *Carmel Church an. Col Judson H. *Kil­patrick unternimmt am 22./23.7.1862 mit Abteilungen seines 2nd New York Cavalry Regiments (Harris Light Cavalry), der 3rd In­diana Cavalry und der 14th Brooklyn Cavalry (Division BrigGen Rufus King, McDowell's Corps, Pope's Army of Virginia) von Fre­dericksburg (vgl. Stackpole: From Cedar Mountain, a.a.O., S. 28) aus einen Vorstoß gegen ein Camp der CS-Truppen, welches bei Carmel Church vermutet wurde; dort legt er einen Hinterhalt, verfolgt angreifende Rebellen bis kurz vor Hanover Junction, wo er das CS-Camp zerstört und wird schließlich von überlegenen Kräften unter Jeb Stuart vertrieben (vgl. Kilpatrick's Report: OR 12 [2} S. 102-103; King's Report: OR 12 [2] S. 102; Mosocco: Chronological Tracking of the Civil War, a.a.O., S. 77).

 

Vom 5.-8.8.1862 führte die Division King mehrere Expeditions nach Frederick's Hall Station, Va. und Spotsylvania Court House, Va, durch (vgl. King's Report, OR 12 [2] S. 121-22). Die Expedition nach Frederick's Hall Court House wurde von der Brigade Gibbon durchgeführt (vgl. King's Report, OR 12 [2] S. 122; Gibbon's Report OR 12 [2] S. 122-23).

 

Während des Battle of Brawner's Farm am 29.8.1862 war King schwer krank; er hatte am 23.8.1862 einen epileptischen Anfall erlit­ten und war dienstunfähig, blieb jedoch auf eigenen Wunsch im Kommando, mußte allerdings in einer Ambulanz gefahren und vom Divisionsarzt betreut werden. Dadurch war sein dienstältester Brigadekommandeur BrigGen John Hatch nicht im Stande die Division zu kommandieren, die infolge von King's Gesundheitszustand praktisch führerlos war (vgl. Gaff: Brave Men's Tears, a.a.O., S. 33).

 

King's Division bestand aus vier Brigaden:

- Brigade John Hatch

- Brigade Abner Doubleday

Kircher, Henry A.:

US-Sergeant; Co. A, 9th Regiment Illinois Infantry (3 months, 1861) (vgl. National Park Soldiers M539 Roll 49); später US-Captain; Co. ACK, 12th Regiment Missouri Infantry (vgl. National Park Soldiers M390 Roll 26).

 

Kircher was born in 1841, one often children of Joseph and Augusta Kircher, German natives who migrated to western Illinois in the 1830s. Kircher grew up in a closely knit family and attended Oakfield Academy, near St. Louis, one of the first German-American schools west of the Mississippi. He became a machinist by trade and was working in his hometown when the first shock waves of Sumter reached Illinois. Kircher and several of his German friends first joined the 9th Illinois as three-months recruits, but he quickly became disillusioned by the political infighting that he visualized would be a barrier to his advancement in the regiment. Because of this disillusionment and the antagonism that developed between the Germans and Americans, he and his Belleville neighbors decided to cross the Mississippi and join the newly formed 12th Missouri, where in time 84 percent of the regiment would be made up of German-Americans. Kircher, who eventually rose to the rank of captain, and the men of the 12th Missouri took part in several im­portant campaigns during their three years service, including Pea Ridge, Chickasaw Bluffs, the siege of Vicksburg, and finally Look­out Mountain. Kircher's letters, most of them written to his mother, end abruptly in November, 1863, following the battle of Ring­gold, Georgia, where he received wounds that caused him to lose both an arm and a leg. Following the war Kircher returned home a hero and despite his handicap became one of Belleville's leading citizens in business and politics, eventually serving two terms as mayor. Kircher was married in 1880 to Bertha Engelmann and had three children. He died on May 1, 1908 (vgl. Indiana Magazine of History, Indiana Historical Society, Indianapolis, by Thomas K. Krasean)

„August Klein was born in Hamburg, Germany, April 10, 1841 and came to America at an early age and settled in Wisconsin. On March 21, 1865, he was married to Miss Lucretia Birum at Baraboo, Wis., and to them were born nine children, five of whom survi­ve him, who were a comfort and a joy to their father in his declining years. They are Misses Belle, Lottie, Amy, and Willie and Carl Klein and Mrs. George Drew. He leaves three brothers and one sister, Chris and Charley Klein of Rock Valley, and Adolph Klein of Lester and Mrs. J. Hirschinger of this place.


Mr. Klein was an old soldier and enlisted in Co. A 6th, Wisconsin infantry on August 28, 1861, and was immediately sent to the front where he had seen some hard fighting. He took part in the engagements at South Mountain, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Gettysburg, The Wilderness and Petersburg. At the last named battle he received a terrible wound after 3 years and 10 months service in the de­fense of this country. He went in as first sergeant and at the close of the war the governor of Wisconsin breveted him first lieutenant for his conspicious bravery on the field of battle. At the time of his death he was commander of the G.A.R. organization of this place.


In June 1869 August Klein took up a homestead in Lyon County and the year following moved with his family onto the same. Seven years ago Mr. Klein entered into partnership with M.B. Smith in the hardware business, but sold out after a short time. Three years ago together with Robt. Roundtree he purchased the Rock Valley Mills and a year later incorporated under the name of the Rock Val­ley Mill Company of which he is president and the heaviest stockholder. He was a holder of stock in The Register until quite recent­ly“ (zitiert bei www.findagrave.com)

Knapp war Herausgeber des unionsfreundlichen St. Louis Missouri Republican und Col 1st Missouri Volunteer Militia. 1861 bei Camp Jackson gefangengenommen, wurde er im Spätjahr 1861 ausgetauscht noch vor dem Allgemeinen Austausch vom Oktober 1861, weshalb er auch nicht in den Listen über den allgemeinen Austausch aufgeführt ist. Knapp schloß sich nun der Sache der Uni­on an und kommandierte die 8th und 11th Missouri Militia Cavalry. Knapp diente außerdem als Volunteer Aid während Governor Price's 1864 Missouri Raid (vgl. Banasik, Michel E. (ed.): Missouri Brothers in Gray. The Reminiscenses and Letters of William J. Bull and John P. Bull, Iowa City 1998, S. 10 Anm. 21; vgl. OR 34, pt. 4, 87; OR 41 pt. 1; OR, Series 2, vol. 1, 132, 553-557).).

 

Knapp's military service began in 1840 when he enlisted as a private in a St. Louis militia company. During the Mexican War, he ser­ved as captain, Company C, 1st Missouri Volunteers. In the fall of 1860 he commanded the 1st Regiment of Missouri militia as part of the Southwest Missouri militia as part of the Southwest Expedition to the Kansas border. He also led his regiment at Camp Jack­son in May 1861 when the command was captured by Federal forces under General Lyon. After Camp Jackson, Knapp's service was the Union cause. He was appointed by Governor Gamble to command the 8th Enrolled Missouri Militia & later by Governor Hall to lead the 13th Provisional Regiment. He supervised a brigade of Missouri Union militia in the pursuit of General Price during his Misso­uri raid in 1864 (vgl. http://www.findagrave.com/, Abruf vom 7.6.2015).

Kountz, William J.:

US-Navy-Captain, verantwortlich für den Schiffstransport bei Angriff auf Forts Donelson and Henry. Kountz war äußerst unbeliebt, weshalb es Petitionen der ihm unterstellten Kapitäne bei U.S. Grant gab, Kountz abzulösen. Grant war gezwungen, um seine An­griffsvorbereitungen zu machen, sein Arbeitszimmer in den Wohnraum seiner Frau in Cairo zu verlegen (vgl. Grant, Julia Dent: Me­moirs, a.a.O., S. 96). Gen. Rawlins, Grant's Stabschef in Cairo warf den immer wieder intervenierenden Kountz aus dem Stabsgebäu­de heraus (a.a.O., S. 96). Kountz war hierüber sehr verärgert und verbreitete aus Rache die Behauptung, Grant und sein Stab sei be­trunken. Col. *Hillyer ließ Kountz daraufhin unter Arrest stellen, Grant ordnete jedoch die sofortige Freilassung an (a.a.O., S. 96). Am 14.1.1862 notiert U.S. Grant, er habe (erneut?) die Festnahme von Kountz befohlen, da sich dieser ungehorsam und streitsüchtig erwiesen habe. Hillyer nahm aufgrund dieses Befehls Kountz unter Arrest bis zu diesen freiwilligem Rücktritt im April 1862. Grant erhob keine förmliche Anklage gegen Kountz, dieser allerdings erhob ernste Vorwürfe gegen Grant wegen angeblicher Trunkenheit (a.a.O., S. 115 Anm. 20 m.w.N.).

A he sent his own officers into action, Buford asked Kress pointedly (spitz), „What are you doing here, sir?“ When Kress explained that he had been sent ahead to locate some shoes for his division, Buford told him abruptedly that he batter get back to his outfit immediate­ly. „Why, what's the matter, General?“. Before Buford could answer, the sound of a single canon sounded to the west. Mounting his horse, Buford said: „That's the matter“ (vgl. Newton: McPherson's Ridge, a.a.O., S. 22).
