"Charles Davis Jameson (February 24, 1827 – November 6, 1862) was an American Civil War general and Democratic Party
candidate for Governor of Maine. He contracted "camp fever" (typhoid) at the Battle of Fair Oaks, returned to his native
state of Maine, dying in transit or soon after.  
Jameson was born in Gorham, Maine, but his family moved to the lumbering and sawmilling center of Old Town, Maine
when he was still a child. Jameson became a successful lumberman, and in 1860 was a delegate to the Democratic
National Convention from Maine. With the outbreak of war in 1861 he was elected Colonel commanding the 2nd Maine
Volunteer Infantry Regiment, the first Maine unit to leave the state for the front. He led his regiment into the First Battle of
Bull Run and was soon made Brigadier General of Volunteers.  In the months after Bull Run the Democratic Party of Maine
split into anti-war and pro-war factions, and Jameson became the gubernatorial candidate of the "War Democrats". He lost
the election to Republican Israel Washburn, Jr. from the neighboring town of Orono, but narrowly beat the anti-war
Democrat, John W. Dana. In 1862, however, with the war going badly, Jameson was largely abandoned by Democratic
voters when he ran again, though the anti-war Democratic candidate was narrowly defeated by Republican Abner Coburn.  
Later that year at the Battle of Fair Oaks, Jameson was wounded and subsequently disabled by "camp fever" (likely typhoid
fever) and allowed to return to Maine. He died in Old Town on November 6, 1862 and is buried at Riverside Cemetery in
Stillwater, Maine.[2] Some sources report that Davison actually died on the steamship carrying him home between Boston
and Bangor"

CDV of General Barton S Alexander by Alexander Gardner.  "Barton Stone Alexander
(September 4, 1819 – December 15, 1878) was an American engineer commander during
the American Civil War who rose to the brevet rank of brigadier general in the regular army.
He was a graduate of the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and served in the United
States Army's Corps of Topographical Engineers, which at times was both a part of and
separate from the United States Army Corps of Engineers. After graduating from West Point
as a second lieutenant in the Class of 1842, he served in the Mexican-American War,
building fortifications to protect American supply lines in the advance on Mexico City. After
the end of the war, he was stationed in Washington, D.C., where he served as architect for
the Scott Building and Quarters Buildings at the U.S. Soldiers' Home and took over the
completion of the Smithsonian Institution Building after dissatisfaction with the pace of the
first architect caused him to be dismissed.  After the completion of the Smithsonian in 1855,
he traveled to New England, where he supervised the rebuilding of the Minot's Ledge
Lighthouse, a project widely considered to be one of the most difficult to be attempted by
the U.S. Government up to that time.  During the American Civil War, he served as an
advisor to the Engineering Brigade of the Army of the Potomac and became chief engineer
of the defenses of Washington, D.C. Following the conclusion of hostilities, he served as
chief engineer of the Military Division of the Pacific, making him the head engineer for every
military construction project on the West Coast. In later years, he persuaded the U.S.
government to acquire Pearl Harbor from the Kingdom of Hawaii and supervised numerous
irrigation and land reclamation projects in California's central valley. He died on December
15, 1878, in San Francisco, California."

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.

colonel to rank from March 13, 1865.  He was mustered out of the volunteers on July 31, 1865.  On December 8, 1868,
President Andrew Johnson nominated Dennis for appointment to the grade of brevet brigadier general of volunteers, to rank

After the war, Dennis was a lawyer and Internal Revenue Service official.
