of the Army of the Potomac. In 1863 during the Siege of Vicksburg, he served
as the chief engineer of the Army of the Tennessee.  The most significant
phase of Comstock's career began in November 1864 when he was appointed
to the staff of Lt. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant, becoming Grant's senior aide-de-

Fort Fisher, North Carolina, and the assault on Mobile, Alabama, both of which
were successful. By the end of the war, Comstock had earned the awards of
the honorary grades of brevet major general in the Volunteer Army and brevet

served on the military commission for the trial of the conspirators in the

commission for his criticism of the proceedings.[3] Later Comstock continued
with the Army Corps of Engineers, took part in several engineering projects,
and served on the Mississippi River Commission, of which he was president."
