"Granger was born in Zanesville, Ohio.
He graduated from the United States Military Academy, placing 28th in the class of 1838.
Granger became a first lieutenant of infantry in 1839. He served as an officer in the Seminole
War, and was assistant instructor of tactics at West Point in 1843–44. During the Mexican–
American War, Granger was promoted to captain on September 8, 1847. When the war
ended, he was assigned to a series of posts on the Texas frontier.  With the outbreak of the
Civil War and the secession of Texas in early 1861, he was captured with Major Sibley's
command on April 27. He was paroled with the stipulation that he not serve in the field again
until August 1862, when he was formally exchanged. During this period, he was promoted to
major on September 9, 1861, and organized an infantry brigade at Mansfield, Ohio. He was
the commandant of the troops at Louisville, Kentucky.  On September 1, 1862, following his
exchange, he was commissioned brigadier general of Kentucky volunteers, and commanded
the Kentucky state troops. He saw action in a series of small engagements—Shepherdsville,
Lebanon Junction, and Lawrenceburg, for which he was brevetted as a colonel in the Regular
Army. He received his commission as brigadier general of U. S. volunteers on October 20,
1862, and commanded a division. In 1863, he returned to administrative duty, commanding
the Districts of Nashville and Middle Tennessee. In early 1864, he superintended the defenses
and organized the depot at Nashville. He was then assigned to the command of the District of
Northern Alabama, and was engaged in the capture of General Roddy's camp, in the
expulsion of Joseph Wheeler from middle Tennessee, and in the defense against Nathan
Bedford Forrest's raid. In October 1864, he defended Decatur, Alabama against John B.
Hood's army, made a sortie on the Confederate siege-works, and received the brevet of
brigadier general in the Regular Army for these services.  He commanded in northern
Alabama in 1865 during the occupation. He was brevetted major general in the Regular Army
for his services during the war and was promoted lieutenant colonel on June 12, 1865 and
colonel on August 16, 1871. Granger was placed on the retired list January 1, 1873."
