Alfred Thomas Archimedes Torbert - General   
Civil War Union Brigadier General. He held both cavalry and infantry commands in the eastern theater of the Civil War. In the beginning of the conflict Confederate officials, believing him loyal to their cause, had commissioned him as a Lieutenant in the CSA army. However, Torbert, a regular army officer and a West Point graduate, declined their offer and served whole-heartedly and courageously for the Union (He is the only documented officer to hold commissions in both USA and CSA armies simultaneously). He was colonel of the 1st New Jersey Infantry, and commanded the famed 1st New Jersey Brigade after its commander, Brig. Gen. George Taylor, was mortally wounded at the 2nd Battle of Bull Run. He led the brigade in its triumphant charge at Compton's Gap, Maryland just prior to the Battle of Antietam. Promoted Brig. Gen. in November 1862, he was present at the Battles of Fredericksburg and Gettysburg. Named to command a division of Cavalry under Maj. Gen. Philip Sheridan in April 1864, General Torbert fought with mixed success in the Shenandoah Valley. He defeated CSA cavalry forces at Tom's Brook, Virginia, and his troopers were one of the few organized troops still on the battle line at Battle at Cedar Creek before Sheridan made is famous rallying ride. He ended the war with brevets of Major General of Volunteers and Major General, United States Regular Army. He died in the 1880 wreck of the Santa Cruz off Cape Canaveral, Florida. He is buried in the Methodist Episcopal Cemetery, Milford, Delaware.
