Caldwell, John C.:

US-MajGen; 17.4.1833 Lowell / Vermont - † 31.8.1912 Calais/Maine; Caldwell was a teacher, a Union general in the American Ci­vil War, and an American diplomat. He graduated from Amherst College in 1855 and moved to Maine, where he was the princi­pal of the Washington Academy in East Machias. At the beginning of the Civil War, Caldwell was 28 years old and had no military experi­ence. However, his bearing as an academic principal seems to have impressed others because he was elected colonel of the 11th Mai­ne Infantry regiment on November 12, 1861. Early in the Peninsula Campaign (April 28, 1862), he was promoted to briga­dier gene­ral and assumed command of the 1st Brigade of the 1st Division of II Corps of the Army of the Potomac after the brigade comman­der, Brigadier General Oliver O. Howard, was wounded at the Battle of Seven Pines. At the Battle of Glendale, he displayed "perso­nal gallantry" in coming to the aid of the beleaguered Union division led by Philip Kearny (https://en.wikipedia.­org/­wiki/John_ C._Caldwell).

 

At the Battle of Antietam, on September 17, 1862, he briefly led his division when its commander, MajGen Israel B. Richardson, was wounded. Caldwell himself was wounded in the battle and he received criticism that he handled his brigade poorly in the assault on the sunken road in the center of the Confederate line (the sunken road, or "Bloody Lane"). There were also rumors spread that he had hidden in the rear to avoid direct contact with the enemy. He was wounded again, twice, at the Battle of Fredericksburg that Decem­ber, while preparing his brigade to assault the stone wall on Marye's Heights; one of his regiments broke and ran during the assault, further tarnishing his reputation. At the Battle of Chancellorsville the following May, his brigade performed well under difficult cir­cumstances, covering the retreat of the army from the crossroads at the Chancellor House (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_ C._Caldwell).

 

Caldwell's bloodiest combat experience was at the Battle of Gettysburg on July 2, 1863. Since May 22, he had commanded the 1st Division of the II Corps, now under Maj. Gen. Winfield S. Hancock. He and his division arrived on the battlefield the morning of July 2 and took up a reserve position on Cemetery Ridge (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_ C._Caldwell). Nachdem MajGen Sick­les sein III. Corps befehlswidrig von der Cemetery Ridge zur Emmitsburg Road nach Westen vorgezogen hatte, obwohl die Konföder­ierten Kräfte westlich der Round Tops zusammenzogen, entstand eine Lücke zwischen Sickles III. Corps und dem nördlich an der Cemetery Ridge eingesetzten II. Corps Hancock und zudem die Gefahr einer Flankierung über die Round Tops. General Cald­well was ordered [gegen 14:00] to put his 1st Division II. Corps Hancock in motion, and to take position in the woods at the west slo­pe of Round Top, in such manner as to resist the enemy should he attempt to come around Sickles' left flank and gain his rear (Stackpole: They Met at Gettysburg, p. 196 unter wörtlicher Zitierung von Haskell, Frank Aretas: The Battle of Gettys­burg [New York 1910]).

 

That afternoon, as the powerful Confederate assault from the corps of Lt. Gen. James Longstreet struck the Union III Corps, Hancock ordered Caldwell's division to reinforce the III Corps in the Wheatfield. Caldwell got his division moving quickly and conducted the largest Union assault of the three-day battle. However, due to a lack of adequate command on that portion of the battlefield, Cald­well's division was hit in its exposed right flank by the Confederate division of Maj. Gen. Lafayette McLaws, causing great confusion and a general retreat back across the Wheatfield. Caldwell received criti­cism from Maj. Gen. George Sykes, the commander of the Union V Corps, who was operating nearby. General Hancock subsequent­ly lost confidence in Caldwell and his staff conducted an in­vestigation to determine whether Caldwell led his di­vision properly. He was exonerated from any blame, but his reputation in the Army of the Potomac was damaged. A recent writer on Gettysburg has bla­med Sykes for giving sketchy instructions to Caldwell (Hartwig, D. Scott. "'No Troops on the Field Had Done Better', John C. Caldwell's Division in the Wheatfield, July 2, 1863; in: Gal­lagher: The Day at Gettysburg, p. 136 ff). In March 1864, the army was reorganized and reduced from five corps to three. Caldwell was relieved of command during this reduction and saw no further combat service (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ John_ C._Caldwell).

 

After the war, Caldwell served in the honor guard for Abraham Lincoln's funeral train. He received a brevet promotion to major ge­neral on August 19, 1865, and he was mustered out of the volunteer service on January 15, 1866. He returned to civilian life as a la­wyer and a member of the Maine Legislature, but he also served as the adjutant general of the Maine Militia from 1867 to 1869. He then entered the diplomatic service as the U.S. Consul in Valparaíso, Chile, from 1869 to 1874; U.S. Minister to Uruguay and  Para­guay, 1874 to 1882; U.S. Consul to San José, Costa Rica, 1897 to 1909. Caldwell died in Calais, Maine, and is buried at St. Stephen Rural Cemetery in St. Stephen, New BrunswickCanada (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_ C._Caldwell).

Lt Calef war Batteriechef von Calef's Battery, Battery A, 2nd US Artillery; im Sommer 1863 verstärkte Calef's Battery die 1st Caval­ry Divi­sion John *Buford beim Vorstoß auf Gettysburg am 30.6.1863 (Martin: Gettysburg, p. 39, 72). Am 30.6.1863 einge­setzt auf dem äußersten rechten Flügel von Devin's Cavalry Brigade nahe Carlisle Pike (Longacre: The Cavalry at Gettysburg, p. 183). Calef's Battery wurde am 1.7.1863 im Battle of Gettysburg in der Frontlinie von Gamble's Cavalry Brigade bei Mc­Pherson's Ridge einge­setzt (Martin: Gettysburg, p. 74, 77, 88, 127, 136, 347; Longacre: The Cavalry at Gettysburg, p. 186; Newton: McPherson's Ridge, p. 19).

 

Gen Buford placed the six three-inch guns of Battery A, 2nd U.S. Artillery, commanded bei Lieutenant John H. Calef auf McPher­son's Ridge. Calef had 2 guns north of the Chambersburg Pike, two immediately south of that road, and the final two down the ridge toward Hagerstown Pike (Newton: McPherson's Ridge, p. 19). Auf McPherson's Ridge hatte Calef's Battery ausgezeich­netes Schuß­feld mit Ausnahme der 300 yards südlich des Chambersburg Pike stehenden McPherson's oder Herbst Woods, several do­zen acres of forest beginning just west of McPherson's ridge and extending down the (Willoughby's) Creek (Newton: McPher­son's Ridge, p. 19).

 

Als am Morgen des 1.7.1863 von McPherson's Ridge die US-Battery von Captain John Calef (Battery A, 2nd U.S. Artillery) das Feu­er auf die von Herr Ridge in Richtung auf McPherson's Ridge vorgehende Brigade Archer und die nördlich des Cashtown Pike in Skirmish Line vorfühlende Brigade Davis (beide Brigaden gehörten zur CS-Division Heth) eröffneten, ordnete der Chef des CS-Ar­tillery Battalions William Pegram (4 Batteries) sei­nerseits die Feuereröffnung durch die beiden nearest batteries, Captain Edward Ma­rye's Fredericksburg Artillery und Lieutenant An­drew Johnston's Crenshaw Artillery, an (Newton: McPherson's Ridge, p. 30).

 

Gegen 10:00 kam Wadsworth's Division (First Corps) zum Einsatz und löste Buford's Cavalry ab. Calef's Battery wurde durch Hall's 2nd Maine Battery ersetzt (Stackpole: They Met at Gettysburg, p. 126).

Calhoun, John:

US-Politiker; aus Springfield / Illinois; Bekannter Lincoln's; Bürgermeister von Springfield; Calhoun zog dann nach Kansas, wo er 1857 einer der Führer der Pro-Slavery-Kräfte wurde (Nevins, The Emergence of Lincoln, p. 134-35).

 

 

Calhoun, John C.:

1782-1850; Senator im US-Senat der Vorkriegszeit aus South Carolina. Er begann seine politische Karriere 1811 als Anhänger der Union und beendete sie als glühender Sezessionist. Calhoun war Mitglied des einflußreichen Senat-Triumvirats, das seit Jahrzehnten die politische Geschicke der Union lenkte. Calhoun vertrat in der Krise der Vorkriegszeit einen Partikularismus, der darauf verwies, daß die Union nur überleben könne, wenn der Norden und der Süden innerhalb des Verbunds gleichberechtigte Mitglieder blieben (McPherson, Für die Freiheit sterben, p. 63; Davis, William C.: Brother against Brother. The War Begins, p. 33).

 

Calhoun war Vizepräsident in den Regierungen von John Quincy Adams (1825-29) und Andrew Jackson (4.3.1829-1832). Er entwi­ckelte 1828 die *Nullification Doctrin. Secretary of War in der Regierung ++++ (Foote, The Civil War, vol. I., S. 7)

 

In den Auseinandersetzungen um die den Norden begünstigende Schutzzollpolitik und um die *Nullification Controversy sowie dem *Missouri Compromise entwickelte sich Calhoun vom Unionisten zum Partikularisten und sammelte nach seiner Niederlage in der Frage der Nullification Anhänger um sich, um künftig eine ausgesprochen prosüdliche Politik zu machen (Davis, William C.: Brother against Brother, p. 36-38). Als Particularist folgte Calhoun der Überzeugung, daß die Union nur überleben könne, wenn Norden und Süden innerhalb des Verbandes gleichberechtigte Machtblöcke blieben. Nachfolger Calhoun als Senatssprecher dieser partikularisti­schen Politik wurde Jefferson *Davis (Foote: The Civil War, Bd. 1, S. 13).

Callaway, Jonathan W.:

CS-Lt; Co E 2nd Arkansas Mounted Rifles; he enlisted in the regiment at Arkadelphia (Clark County), in the early summer of 1861 and was officially enrolled into the Confederate service at Camp McRae on July 27 of the same year. Callaway accompanied his regim­ent to camps in southwest Missouri and was present at the battle of Wilson's Creek on August 10, 1861. After the battle Calla­way and his regiment returned to Arkansas and went into winter quarters near Van Buren (Crawford County). The Second Arkansas saw action again at the battle of Pea Ridge (Benton County) and then joined with other Southern forces east of the Mississippi at Co­rinth, Mississippi.

 

Documents/Literature:

- **Callaway, Jonathan W.: Letters and papers, 1861-1864. Callaway began writing letters home to Arkadelphia shortly before the Wil­son's Creek fight, usually addressing them to W. T. Thompson. Most of the letters were written in 1861 and 1862 from places in Misso­uri, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Tennessee, including Chattanooga and Cumberland Gap. One letter, dated April 15, 1864, was sent from a location in Texas and describes some fighting in Louisiana during the Camden Expedition. Other documents in the col­lection include samples of the "Hornet's Nest," a handwritten regimental "newspaper" produced in Missouri in 1861. Microfilm copy made by the Arkansas History Commission in 1960 (Univ. of Arkansas, Fayetteville: Manuscript Resources for the Civil War, Com­piled by Kim Allen Scott, 1990).

 

 

Callaway, Josua K.:

CS-2ndLt; Co. K, 28th Regiment Alabama Infantry (National Park Soldiers M374 Roll 7; here mentioned as 'John K.'').

 

Josua K. Callaway was a schoolteacher, husband, and father of two when he enlisted in the 28th Alabama Infantry Regiment at the age of twenty-seven. Serving with the Army of the Tennessee, he campaigned in Mississippi, Kentucky, Tennessee, and north Geor­gia. Along the way this perceptive observer and gifted writer wrote a continuous narrative detailing the activities, concerns, hopes, fears, discomforts, and pleasures of a Confederate soldier in the field.

 

Whether writing about combat, illness, encampments, or homesickness, Callaway makes even the everyday aspects of soldiering in­teresting. This large collection, seventy-four letters in all, is a valuable historical reference that provides new insights into life behind the front lines of the Civil War.

 

From the Kentucky Campaign to Tullahoma, Chickamauga to Missionary Ridge, junior officer Joshua K. Callaway took part in some of the most critical campaigns of the Civil War. His twice-weekly letters home, written between April 1862 and November 1863, chronicle his gradual change from an ardent Confederate soldier to a weary veteran who longs to be at home (aus Hallock, Judith Lee (ed.): The Civil War Letters of Josua K. Callaway, Inhaltsangabe bei www.amazon.de, Abruf v. 5.4.2017).

Cameron, Simon:

US-Secretary of War: Er musste aber Anfang des Jahres 1862 zurücktreten, da die Mehrheit des Kongresses mit seiner Emanzipati­ons-Proklamation zur Befreiung der Sklaven nicht einverstanden war. Schon davor hatte seine Amtsführung durch fehlende Versor­gung der Truppen und Vergabe von Armeeaufträgen an seine Freunde Kritik auf sich gezogen. Durch seine schroff republikanische Gesinnung und seine Begünstigung der immer mehr um sich greifenden Korruption in der Partei, wegen welcher der Kongress einen Tadel gegen ihn aussprach, machte er sich für andere Regierungsämter unmöglich. Thaddeus Stevens soll einmal über ihn bemerkt haben, als Präsident Lincoln ihn fragte, ob er wirklich glaube, dass Cameron stehle: „Ich glaube, er würde keinen glühend heißen Ofen stehlen“. Unmittelbar nach seinem Rücktritt wurde er zum US-Botschafter in Russland ernannt; diesen Posten hatte er bis zum 18. September desselben Jahres inne (wikipedia, keyword 'Simon Cameron, accessed 2.1.2019)..

 

1799 Lancaster/Cty/PA - 1889; Politiker und reicher Geschäftsmann, Republikaner; er kandidierte auf dem Parteikongreß der Repu­blikaner in Chicago (Chicago Convention) im Mai 1860 als Präsidentschaftskandidat (Schurz, Reminiscenses, vol. 2, S. 175). US-Kriegsminister bis Ende 1861. Kaufmann bezeichnet Cameron als „gräßliche[n] Pfuscher“ (Kaufmann: Die Deutschen im Amerika­nischen Bürgerkriege, p. 67).

 

++++Freunde nie vergißt“ (Cameron hatte einen schlechteren Ruf als sein Gegenspieler im Süden Leroy P. Walker; McPherson S. 306). Chase (, S. 61) berichtet, daß Cameron zu einem Gespräch zwischen Chase und Stanton hinzukam, wobei er einen ge­rade er­haltenen Brief Lincoln's vorwies, der ihm mitteilte, Cameron werde am nächsten Tag als Gesandter für Rußland nominiert. "He was quite offended, supposing the letter intended as a dismissal, and, therefore, discourteous." (Zitat nach Chase, p. 61). Lincoln hatte in einem kurzen Brief vom 11.1.1862 mitgeteilt, Cameron werde am 12.1.1862 im US-Senat als Botschafter in Rußland nominiert. In einem längeren "privaten" Brief vom gleichen Tag gab Lincoln ihm "assurance of my undiminished confidence" (Basler, Roy P., ed.: The Collected Works of Abraham Lincoln [New Brunswick: Rutgers University Press, 1953) Vol. V. 96-7).

On his left, between the fort and the Beaufort Road, he placed the 27th and 37th North Carolina (Col Charles C. *Lee). Colonel C. C. *Lee commanded the left wing. His right wing, led by Col. Reuben Campbell, consisted of the 7th North Carolina Infantry (Col.

Anm.: die Angabe, Campbell sei Sergeant; Co. B (Rockbridge Rifles, Lexington, Rockbridge County), 5th Regiment Virginia Infan­try gewesen bei National Park Soldiers M382 Roll 9 scheint fehlerhaft und beruht wohl auf einer Personenverwechslung.

Sohn von Wil­liam Capers (1790-1855) und Susan McGill (1797-1860; Tochter von William McGill, Kershaw County/SC) (http://www.resear­chonline.net/ sccw/bios/biosc2.htm, Abruf vom 7.6.2015; http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page= gr&GRid=8961, Ab­ruf vom 7.6.2015).

 

William Capers, the grandfather of Ellison, was a soldier of the revolution, a lieutenant in the Second South Carolina regiment, and after the fall of Charleston in 1780, one of Marion's captains in his famous partisan brigade, in which his only brother, G. Sinclair Ca­pers, held the same rank. Several thrilling incidents in the career of these two gallant partisan captains are related by Judge James, of South Carolina, in his life of Marion. They were both planters http://www.researchonline.net/sccw/ bios/biosc2.htm, Abruf vom 7.6.2015).

Capers was the son of a Methodist bishop. He was born in Charleston, South Carolina, and educated in local schools. He graduated from South Carolina Military Academy, later known as The Citadel, in 1857, and then worked as a teacher at the academy. At the out­break of the Civil War, Capers joined the Confederate Army with the rank of major (aus: Wikipedia, Stichwort Ellison Capers, Ab­ruf vom 7.6.2015). Major Capers und sein Vorgesetzter, Col James Johnston Pettigrew (beide 1st Regiment of Rifles, South Carolina Militia) verhandelten bei Ausbruch der Fort Sumter Krise im Auftrag von South Carolina Governor, Francis W. Pickens, mit Major Robert *Anderson, dem Kommandanten von Fort Sumter (Wilson: Pettigrew and his Men, p. 33).

 

Capers served on coastal defense duties until 1863, having been promoted to lieutenant colonel of the 24th South Carolina Infantry. In May 1863 the regiment joined the army of General Joseph E. Johnston for the Vicksburg Campaign. Capers was wounded but pro­moted to colonel. Capers returned to field ser­vice in time for the Chickamauga Campaign with the Army of Tennessee. He fought in the disastrous Battle of Franklin. After the campaign he commanded a brigade, replacing States Rights Gist, who had been killed in action. Capers was promoted to brigadier general on March 1, 1865, shortly before the end of hostilities. He was captured at Bentonville, North Carolina, but there is no record of parole. Capers returned home after the Civil War. In December 1865, he was elected Secretary of State for South Carolina. He was rector of Christ Church (Episcopal) in Greenville. He served as the Episcopal Bishop of South Carolina from 1894 to his death. He also served as chancellor of Sewanee: The University of the South from 1904 to 1908. He died in Columbia, South Carolina, and is buried there at Trinity Episcopal Churchyard (aus: Wikipedia, Stichwort Ellison Capers, Abruf vom 7.6.2015).

Carleton, James Henry:

27.12.1814 Lubec/Maine - † 7.1.1873 San Antonio/Texas

 

Carleton was an officer in the U. S. Army and a general in the Union army during the American Civil War. Carleton is best known as an Indian fighter in the southwestern United States.  He was commissioned as a Lieutenant in the US Army in 1839, during the Aroostook War, and took part in the Mexican-American War. He served in the 1st U.S. Dragoons in the American West, participa­ting as a Lieutenant in an 1844 expedition to the Pawnee and the Oto.

 

US-MajGen (breveted) und LtCol US-Army; Col 1st California Infantry Regiment  August 19, 1861 - June 1, 1862.

 

In 1861 Carleton raised and was appointed colonel of the 1st California Volunteer Infantry Regiment. In October 1861, Colonel Car­leton replaced Brigadier General George Wright as commander of the District of Southern California. In 1862 he led the so-cal­led California Column across CaliforniaArizonaNew Mexico, and into Texas. Along the way the Californians fought the Battle of Picacho Pass and, afterward, the Battle of Apache Pass. Carleton was promoted to Brigadier General of volunteers on April 28, du­ring the march from California to Arizona. He also established Fort Bowie near Apache Pass. Carleton finally linked up with Union forces under General Edward R. S. Canby in New Mexico. After the Confederate threat to New Mexico seemed to have been elimi­nated, Canby and many of the Union forces were sent to the east; so, in late August, Carleton was placed in command of the Depart­ment of New Mexico. Because of uncertainty as to whether the Confederates would try to re-invade New Mexico, Carleton took measures such as maintaining spies along the New Mexico-Texas border and retaining the services of volunteer units from Colorado which had played a prominent role in expelling the Confederates from New Mexico in the winter and spring of 1862 (http://en.wiki­pedia.org/wiki/James_Henry_Carleton).

During his tenure as department commander, Carleton was concerned mainly with Indian threats. His primary field commander was Colonel Christopher "Kit" Carson. Carleton campaigned relentlessly against the Indians, and although he was strong on discipline, he was popular with his men. Against the Navajo he elected scorched earth tactics. Carleton's campaigning brought the depredations of the Navajo to an end at Canyon de Chelly, and was followed by the "Long Walk". Carleton next sent Carson on an expedition to rid the southwest of Indian raids which resulted in the Battle of Adobe Walls. One notorious quote by Carleton on the subject of Indians: "All Indian men of that tribe are to be killed whenever and wherever you can find them…. If the Indians send in a flag of truce say to the bearer ... that you have been sent to punish them for their treachery and their crimes. That you have no power to make peace, that you are there to kill them wherever you can find them." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Henry_Carleton).

Carleton was appointed brevet major general in the regular army in 1865, the same year that the Civil War ended. He retained com­mand of his volunteer troops until 1866 when U.S. Regulars took over in the West. Carleton served as a lieutenant colonel of the 4th U.S. Cavalry after the war (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Henry_Carleton).

Williams, XX Corps MajGen Joseph P. Hooker (B & L, vol. IV, S. 286), MajGen George H. Thomas’ Army of the Cumberland. Teilnahme am Battle of Resaca am 14./15.5.1864. Die Division Williams wur­de hierbei an den äußersten linken Flügel der US-Front verlegt zur Unterstützung des dort eingesetzten IV. Corps, welches praktisch in der Luft hing. Gegen diesen Flügel erfolgte der CS-Angriff von Gen Hood mit den Divisionen Stewart und Stevenson mit dem Ziel Sherman‘s Army zu flankieren und sie von ihren rückwärtigen Verbindungen nach Snake Creek Gap abzuschneiden. Der Angriff wurde erst im letzten Moment, nachdem die US-Front bereits zerbrochen war, durch Captain Simonson‘s Artillery im direkten Be­schuß zusammen geschossen (Castel: Decision in the West, p. 163 ff).

 

Carman war nach dem Krieg Mitglied des Antietam Battlefield Board und Mitherausgeber des 'Atlas of the Battlefield of Antietam'. Er sammelte nach dem Krieg umfangreiches Material über die Schlacht von Antietam, für ein Manuscript, das unveröffentlicht blieb, und unausgewertet in der Library of Congress schlummerte. Erst Stephen W. *Sears stieß aufgrund eines Hinweises von Bruce *Cat­ton auf dieses Material, das er bei seinem Werk über die Schlacht von Antietam benutzte (Sears, Landscape Turned Red, p. 373).

Carruth, Sumner:

US-BrigGen bvt.; Col; Col 35th Massachusetts Infantry während Grant's Vicksburg Campaign 1863 (Bearss: Vicksburg vol. III, S. 1145).

 

Sumner Carruth was an officer in the volunteer army of the United States during the American Civil War. He commanded the 35th Massachusetts Infantry and eventually rose to the command of two different brigades in the IX Corps (https://en.wikipedia.org/ wiki/Sumner_Carruth).

 

Carruth was born on December 22, 1834 in North Brookfield, Massachusetts. He worked as a machinist. At the outbreak of the Civil War he was a militia officer. His company, the Chelsea Light Infantry, was mustered into the federal service as Company H of the 1st Massachusetts Infantry in 1861. 1st Lt. Carruth was credited with the leading role in persuading the company to volunteer (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sumner_Carruth).

 

On May 22, 1861, Carruth, became captain of Company H by election. He first saw combat at First Bull Run in the brigade of Col. Israel B. Richardson. Carruth next served in the Army of the Potomac during the Peninsula Campaign. The regiment was in the III Corps in the division of Maj. Gen. Joseph Hooker. Carruth was present at the Battle of Yorktown (1862), where his company distinguished itself. The company also fought at the Battle of Williamsburg. Carruth was wounded in the arm at the Battle of Seven Pines, apparently missing the subsequent battles of the Peninsula Campaign (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sumner_Carruth).

 

Carruth returned to the field as a major in the newly organized 35th Massachusetts Infantry, commissioned at that rank on August 21, 1862. He was promoted to the rank of lieutenant colonel on August 27 of that year. The regiment served in IX Corps in the division of Brig. Gen. Samuel D. Sturgis. Carruth was present at the Battle of South Mountain, where the commander, Col. Edward A. Wild was wounded. Carruth succeeded to command, but he was wounded at the Battle of Antietam near Burnside’s Bridge.[2] Car­ruth was captured at White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia on November 11, 1862, missing the Battle of Fredericksburg. After being exchanged, Carruth next served in IX Corps in the Department of the Ohio. He became colonel of his regiment on May 1, 1863 and served with the corps in the Siege of Vicksburg, as well as in Eastern Tennessee. Carruth led the 2nd brigade, 2nd division, IX Corps from February 2 to March 3, 1864, before the Corps was transferred back to Virginia. In Virginia, he led the same brigade in April 1864. Then he led 1st brigade, 1st division, IX Corps from April 25 to May 6, 1864. On the second day of the Battle of the Wilder­ness, May 6, Carruth's brigade was involved in the fighting on the Orange Plank Road. Fighting in the Wilderness alongside the troops of Brig. Gen. Alexander Webb and Brig. Gen. James Wadsworth, Carruth was felled by sunstroke and carried from the field (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sumner_Carruth).

 

Col. Carruth returned to IX Corps in the Army of the Potomac late in 1864 during the Siege of Petersburg, command his regiment. He led a brigade in the second division from January 23 to February 11, 1865, in the absence of Brig. Gen. John I. Curtin. He did so again from May 4 to June 9 of that year, serving in the Department of Washington after the Confederate surrender. Carruth was mus­tered out of the volunteer service on June 9, 1865. On January 13, 1866, President Andrew Johnson nominated Carruth for the award of the honorary grade of brevet brigadier general, U.S. Volunteers, to rank from April 9, 1865, and the U.S. Senate confirmed the award on March 12, 1866. His brevet was awarded for gallant and meritorious services in the attack on Fort Mahone on April 2, 1865 during Battle of Petersburg III. Maj. Gen. John G. Parke, commander of IX Corps, recommended him; and two other officers com­mended his regiment for its role in that action (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sumner_Carruth).

 

Sumner Carruth married Clara Smith of Newark, New Jersey on August 18, 1862, just before leaving the 1st Massachusetts and joi­ning the 35th regiment. The Sumner’s had two daughters, Minnie Hale, born in 1863, and Clara Louise, born in 1869. Carruth farmed and served as a customs official. Sumner died in 1892 in Andover, Massachusetts and was buried in the West Parish Cemetery (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sumner_Carruth).

Carter, Robert Goldthwaite:

US-Pvt; Co. H, 22th Regiment Massachusetts Infantry (National Park Soldiers M544 Roll 6).

 

Carter was a private in the 22nd Massachusetts Infantry; his brother Eugene served as a 1st Lt and Quartermaster in the same unit; his other brothers served in the 22nd Mass Infantry and 1st Mass Heavy Artillery. Their letters tell an unbroken tale of the batt­les of the Eastern Theater.

 

In July 1865, he began attending West Point and was eventually commissioned a second lieutenant and assigned to the 4th U.S. Cavalry on June 15, 1870. During the next several years, Carter would participate in a number of expeditions against the Comanche and other tribes in the Texas-area. It was during one of these campaigns that he was brevetted first lieutenant and awarded the Medal of Honor for his "most distinguished gallantry" against the Comanche in Blanco Canyon on a tributary of the Brazos River on October 10, 1871. Carter would suffer a severe injury during the battle, his left leg being shattered as his horse fell against a rock, which would eventually result in his early retirement. He would officially receive the medal on January 23, 1900. Returning to active duty, he joined Colonel Ranald Mackenzie in several campaigns including against the Kickapoo of northern Mexico in May 1873 and awarded a brevet to captain. He did win promotion to first lieutenant on February 21, 1875 although his leg injury disqualified him from active field duty and forced him to retire on June 28, 1876. Although he eventually recovered from his leg injury after proper treatment, his requests to return to active service were denied by the US Army; instead he was promoted to captain on the retired list in 1904. He taught school and later headed the Washington-bureau of the Public Service Publishing Company in New York City. He would also write a number of booklets and books including Four Brothers in Blue (1913) and The Old Sergeant's Story (1926). However, the most successful was his memoir On the Border With Mackenzie (1935) which was published as the age of 90. He died at Washington, D.C. on January 4, 1936 and buried in Arlington National Cemetery (wikipedia, Stichwort 'Robert Goldthwaite Carter', Abruf v. 13.4.2018).

Carter, Thomas H.:

CS-Col; zunächst Captain in W.P. Carter's Battery, Virginia Light Artillery (National Park Soldiers M382 Roll 10). Im Battle of Get­tysburg war LtCol Thomas H. Carter der Kommandeur von Carter's Artillery Battery, Rodes' Division, Ewell's Corps (Tru­deau: Get­tysburg, p. 588; Nolan: „R. E. Lee and July I at Gettysburg“, p. 22; Pula: Under the Crescent Moon, vol. 2, p. 21).

 

Carter was born in King William County, Virginia, the third of five children and the second son of Thomas Nelson Carter and Juliet Gaines Carter. His father was a first cousin to Robert E. Lee. Carter was a member of the Virginia Military Institute (VMI) Class of 1849. He earned medical degrees from the University of Virginia (1851) and the University of Pennsylvania (1852). Carter never practiced medicine. Instead, he returned to manage his father's plantation, Pampatike, after the overseer died (https://en. wikipe­dia.org/wiki/Thomas_Henry_Carter).

 

He entered what became the Army of Northern Virginia in June 1861 as captain of the King William Artillery. His younger brother, Julian Carter of the 4th Virginia Cavalry, was killed in late July 1862 at a minor skirmish near Malvern Hill. Tom Carter was woun­ded in the foot at Sharpsburg. In December he was promoted to major, a rank he held until he became a lieutenant colonel in April 1863. By the Gettysburg Campaign of 1863, Carter commanded a battalion of artillery in Lt. Gen. Richard S. Ewell's Second Corps. His guns unlimbered on Oak Hill northwest of Gettysburg and contributed to the eventual withdrawal of the Union First Corps of the Army of the Potomac. Carter's guns later supported Pickett's Charge on July 3. Promoted to colonel in March 1864, he remained with the Army of Northern Virginia during the Overland Campaign until September when he left to temporarily replace Brig. Gen. Armistead L. Long as chief of artillery for Lt. Gen. Jubal A. Early during the second half of Early's Valley Campaigns of 1864. Carter fought in several important battles, including the Battle of Cedar Creek (https://en. wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_Henry_ Car­ter). On 1.7.1863 deployed on Oak Hill, north of die Cashtown Pike (Martin: Gettysburg July 1, p. 207) and gave flanking fire on Doubleday's US-Front I. Corps on McPherson's Ridge (Martin: Gettysburg July 1, p. 343 with map p, 348).

 

Following the surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia at Appomattox Court House, Carter returned to his ancestral family planta­tion, Pampatike, which was located near the Pamunkey River in eastern Virginia, where he lived with his wife Susan (Roy) Carter and their three small children. Carter continued to farm the property, and his wife operated a school at the house. In the late 1870s Carter was appointed the first railroad commissioner in the state of Virginia. He held the position for a handful of years. In the late 1880s, he served for several years as a member of the board of arbitration of the Southern Railway and Steamship Association. Carter spent his final years as proctor and superintendent of grounds and buildings for the University of Virginia (https://en. Wikipedia. org/wiki/Thomas_Henry_Carter).

The author occasionally stretches the truth for the sake of a good story." "This is a superb tale of a common Confederate soldier's wartime service."

Castleman, John Breckenridge:

CS-Major; Co. D, 2ne Regiment Kentucky Cavalry (Duke's); zuvor Captain (National Park Soldiers M377 Roll 3).

 

30.6.1841 - ++++; aus wohlhabender Familie aus Castleton nahe Lexington / Kentucky. Castleman schloß sich 1862 John Hunt Mor­gan's Cavalry an. Captain Co. A 9th Kentucky Cavalry; John Hunt Morgan's Cavalry. Castleman war befreundet mit Thomas B. *Hin­es. Castleman verließ Morgan's Cavalry und folgte Hines, der inzwischen als Geheimagent in Canada für die CSA tätig war (Starr: Col Grenfell's Wars, p. 95; Horan: Confederate Agent, p. 8).

 

Castleman beurteilt Morgan kritisch: Morgan mangelte es entscheidend an Selbstdisziplin. Er war unfähig seine Soldaten zu diszipli­nieren. Morgan's Truppe war deshalb berüchtigt und sein Name wurde zum Synonym für Pferdediebstahl und offenem Banditentum (Starr: Col Grenfell's Wars, p. 46-47). Er war eher ein romantischer Held als Held der Fakten (Starr, p. 47 Anm. 24; Brief von John B. Castleman an Thomas Henry Hines vom 7.2.1867; in Thomas Hines Papers, University of Kentucky Li­brary, Lexington).
