General Alfred Duffie; "When the American Civil War broke out, Duffié enlisted in the Union
Army. He first joined the 2nd New York Cavalry (also known as the Harris Light Cavalry), on
August 9, 1861, and was soon promoted to the rank of captain. The somewhat quarrelsome
Duffié was placed under arrest several times for confrontations with other officers; in one
incident, he challenged General Fitz John Porter to a duel.  In July 1862 Duffié was
appointed to command the 1st Rhode Island Cavalry, with the rank of colonel, by that state's
governor,  Assigned to the command of General William Averell, they saw action against
Confederate troops under Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson in August 1862, in fighting near
Cedar Mountain, Virginia.  At the Battle of Kelly's Ford in March 1863 Duffié ordered a
charge, against Averell's orders to keep on the defensive, which forced the opposing
cavalry into retreat. When the Union cavalry was reorganized under Alfred Pleasonton,
Duffié was promoted to divisional command. On June 9, 1863, Duffié's division was
assigned to the left wing of an intended assault on the Confederate cavalry, but initially lost
its way, putting them behind schedule.  Meanwhile, the Union right wing had opened the
Battle of Brandy Station. Arriving on the field, Duffié was ordered toward the town of
Stevensburg; there his division was halted by a smaller Confederate force.  As a result, he
was demoted back to regimental command. On June 17, 1863 he led the 1st Rhode Island
on a reconnaissance mission toward Middleburg, Virginia. There he came close to capturing
Confederate cavalry commander J.E.B. Stuart; after his narrow escape, Stuart returned to
Middleburg and inflicted a decisive defeat on Duffié's regiment, only 61 members of the 1st
Rhode Island got back to the Union lines.  . His division of West Virginia volunteers saw
action around Lewisburg in December 1863 and as part of General David Hunter's 1864
campaign in the Shenandoah Valley. He also took part in operations against Confederate
guerrilla leader John S. Mosby, promising to capture the so-called "Gray Ghost" and bring
him back to Washington.   Instead, it was Duffié who was captured by Mosby's men near
Bunker Hill, West Virginia, on October 20, 1864.   Anthony/Brady bm.

American Civil War who was subsequently appointed a brevet brigadier general. He was a metal worker before the war.[1][2]
At the beginning of the war, he served as a private with the 6th Massachusetts Militia. He later served as a captain in the
7th Connecticut Volunteer Infantry. He was severely wounded at the Battle of Pocotaligo in South Carolina. He was later
