Biography
James H. Wilson (1837-1925), ranked sixth in the West Point class of 1860. Originally an engineer, he served on the staffs of Generals McClellan at Antietam and Grant at Vicksburg. Grant and later Sherman entrusted him with cavalry commands, a duty at which he excelled, as his horsemen swept through Georgia and occupied Macon in April 1865. Wilson's troops captured the fleeing Confederate President Jefferson Davis in May. Retired from the service in 1870, Wilson returned to uniform as a Major General of Volunteers in Puerto Rico and Cuba during the Spanish-American War and saw service in China during the Boxer Rebellion (1901).
