About Abraham Garrison Demarest

Civil War Union Army Officer. Commissioned as Major of the 22nd New Jersey Volunteer Infantry on September 9, 1862, he served as second in command of the unit through the December 1862 Fredericksburg Campaign, due to the fact that the unit's originally appointed Colonel, Cornelius Fornet, was objected to by the men and citizens of Bergen County that Fornet decided to ignore the appointment, and did not serve. Internal regimental factional strife, and faction conflict from the regiment's home area induced Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Douglas, in command since September 1862, to resign in disgust. Major Demarest was promoted to Colonel of the unit, which he led in the May 1863 Battle of Chancellorsville, and through to their muster out of service on June 25, 1863.
