Colonel & BBG Henry A. Morrow, 24th Michigan, Commanded Regiment at Gettysburg, WIA
4/30/2014 - Firearms and Militaria: Live Salesroom Auction
Anonymous CDV of Bvt. Brig. Gen. Henry A. Morrow, Col., 24th Michigan Inf. Morrow was wounded in the head and captured at Gettysburg on July 1 and proceeded to masquerade as a Union surgeon to retain his freedom of movement. He watched the spectacle of Pickett’s Charge from the cupola of the Seminary and when the Confederates retreated simply walked back to his own lines. Morrow was brevetted brigadier of volunteers in August 1864 and earned a second wartime brevet to major general, USV in March 1865, having been wounded twice more during the war. He was retained in the regular army becoming lieutenant colonel, 36th Infantry in July 1866. A third brevet awarded in 1867 was not confirmed by the Senate. Morrow had advanced to colonel of the 21st Infantry by 1879 and was still on active service when he died in January 1891.
