Harper's Encyclopedia of United States History (ed. Benson Lossing), Cole, Nelson 1833- (search)
Cole, Nelson 1833- Military officer; born in Dutchess county, New York, Nov. 18, 1833; subsequently settled in St. Louis, Mo. When the Civil War broke out he entered the Union army and served with conspicuous ability in numerous engagements. Early in 1865, at the head of 1.500 men, he led a successful expedition against the hostile Sioux, Arapahoe, and Cheyenne Indians at the sources of the Yellowstone River. He was made a brigadier-general of volunteers on May 28, 1898, and given command of the 3d Brigade, 2d Division, at Camp Alger. The unwholesome conditions of the camp caused his resignation, and his death, in St. Louis, Mo., July 31, 1899.
