2366RE: [TalkAntietam] General Julius White
- Nov 26 11:17 AMWhite was an Illinois politician. He had been in the Wisconsin legislature.
Started out as Col. of the 37th Il. He commanded a brigade and was wounded
at Pea Ridge in March 1862, and promoted to BG in June 1862.
According to Shea & Hess in "Pea Ridge" (a great book, BTW), White "lost
control of his brigade of Illinois regiments in Morgan's Woods and was
forced to disengage in order to save his command from disintegrating."
He later commanded a division under Burnside at Knoxville, and, uh oh, was
his chief of staff up until the Crater. After Burnside's departure, White
got a division in 9th Corps, but went home sick shortly thereafter. His
resignation was accepted 11/19/64. He was brevetted MGUSV 3/13/65.
