CDV of Future Vice President Henry Wilson as Colonel of the 22nd
Massachusestts Volunteers.  "During the American Civil War, Wilson was
Chairman of the Committee on Military Affairs and the Militia, and later the
Committee on Military Affairs. In that capacity, he oversaw action on over 15,000
War and Navy Department nominations that Abraham Lincoln submitted during
the course of the war, and worked closely with him on legislation affecting the
Army and Navy. After his 1862 resignation as Secretary of War, Simon Cameron
praised Wilson's work aiding the War Department.  In the summer of 1861, after
the congressional session ended, Wilson returned to Massachusetts and
recruited and equipped nearly 2,300 men in forty days. They were mustered in
as the 22nd Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry, which he commanded from
September 27 to October 29, an honor sometimes accorded to the individual
responsible for raising and equipping a regiment.[50][37] After the war he
became an early member of the Military Order of the Loyal Legion of the United
States.  Wilson's experience in the militia, service with the 22nd Massachusetts,
and chairmanship of the Military Affairs Committee provided him with more
practical military knowledge and training than any other Senator.[37] He made
use of this experience throughout the war to frame, explain, defend and advocate
for legislation on military matters, including enlistment of soldiers and sailors, and
organizing and supplying the rapidly expanding Union Army and Union Navy.  
Winfield Scott, the Commanding General of the United States Army since 1841,
said that during the session of Congress that ended in the Spring of 1861 Wilson
had done more work "than all the chairmen of the military committees had done
for the last 20 years."[37] On January 27, 1862, Simon Cameron, the recently
resigned Secretary of War, echoed Scott's sentiments when he said that "no
man, in my opinion, in the whole country, has done more to aid the war
department in preparing the mighty [Union] army now under arms than yourself
