About Brig. Gen. Wlodzimierz Bonawentura Krzyzanowski

Włodzimierz Bonawentura Krzyżanowski (1824-1887) was a Polish-born American engineer, politician, and military leader — during the American Civil War, a brigadier general in the Union Army. A Polish noble, he took part in the 1848 uprising against Prussia and left Poland after its suppression. In early 1861 he enlisted in the United States' Union Army, recruited a company of Polish immigrants, and became colonel of the 58th New York Volunteer Infantry Regiment, listed in the official Army Register as the "Polish Legion". In 1862 he was promoted to brigadier general. In the July 1863 Battle of Gettysburg, Krzyżanowski helped repel an evening assault by the famed Louisiana Tigers on the Union defenses atop East Cemetery Hill. After the Civil War, he held several government posts, though not as the first American administrator of Alaska Territory, as is often thought. Wikipedia EN
