After service with General Robert Patterson at Martinsburg, Butterfield was appointed Brigadier General of Volunteers to rank from Sept. 7, 1861 and assigned to command a brigade in George W. Morell's division of Fitz John Porter's V Corps.
He was wounded at Gaines' Mill in the Peninsular campaign, and thirty years later was awarded the Medal of Honor for his conduct on that day. He commanded the Corps after Porter's removal. Butterfield was severely wounded at Gettysburg while he was General George Meade's Chief of Staff. He became ill just shortly after commanding the XX Corps in the Atlanta Campaign and saw no more field service thereafter. In 1865, he was brevetted Brigadier and Major General in the U.He claimed to be the composer of the bugle call "Taps". The Battle of Lookout Mountain took place on November 24, 1863 , so this photo must have been taken within a month of that victory. General Joseph Hooker, out-generaled by Robert E. Lee at the Battle of Chancellorsville (May 1863), was relieved of command of the Army of the Potomac just before the Battle of Gettysburg. Transferred to the Western Theater, he earned a measure of redemption as commander of a wing of the Army of the Cumberland under General George Thomas, clearing Confederate troops off Lookout Mountain as a part of the larger Battle of Chattanooga, which shattered the Confederate army in Tennessee and made possible General Sherman's successful assault on Atlanta and march to the sea through Georgia. Butterfield was Hooker's Chief of Staff. The General Reynolds pictured here was Joseph J.
Reynolds, Thomas' Chief of Staff. LeDuc , another staff officer, would be US Commissioner of Agriculture under President Hayes.
Was the brother of H. Perkins and President of the Importers and Traders Bank of New York City.See more material from these signers. See more listings in our MILITARY (2,580). Please note that this is an authentically signed item.
