Description

1901. Part 1. With maps and illustrations. A loving son writes this Life of his father, General Stevens, Army Engineer, and governor of Washington territory. After graduating at West Point, he served through the Mexican War, participating in several engagements and being wounded in the attack on Mexico City. He was then deployed to Washington with the U.S. Coast Survey in Washington until his appointment as governor of the territory. Besides his duties of Governorship, he surveyed the northern route for the railroad to the Pacific. His drastic measures to suppress disaffection with the Indians made him extremely unpopular, but he was elected territorial delegate to Congress and there defended his actions. He was appointed Colonel of 79th New York Volunteers (Highlanders) at the outbreak of the Civil War, and when eight companies mutinied after First Battle of Bull Run, he took drastic measures to restore order. As a result he was promoted to Brigadier-General, participated in the Port Royal expedition and, then transferred to Virginia to lead the division at Newport News. While serving in northern Virginia as Major-General under Pope he was killed at the Battle of Chantilly.
