Union County Veterans – Ambrose Everett Burnside

The history of Union County is as colorful as the leaves in fall at Whitewater State Park – just ask local Genealogist, Karen Coffey.  Along with her mother, Crystal, Karen developed and maintains the preeminent home of local history on the internet, UCGenweb.org.

For Veteran’s Day, let’s take a look at one of the most famous of Liberty’s personalities, Ambrose Everett Burnside (May 23, 1824 – September 13, 1881) .  Burnside was a Hoosier,  American soldier, railroad executive, inventor, industrialist, and politician from Rhode Island, serving as governor and a U.S. Senator. As a Union Army general in the American Civil War, he conducted successful campaigns in North Carolina and East Tennessee but was defeated in the disastrous Battle of Fredericksburg and Battle of the Crater, earning his reputation as one of the most incompetent generals of the war. His distinctive style of facial hair is now known as sideburns, derived from his last name. (source:  Wikipedia)
