Colonel Dixon Miles USA (1804-1862)

C. 1860s

Colonel Dixon S. Miles' 43-year military career ended in disgrace at Harpers Ferry on September 15, 1862. His professional life before the Civil War did not foreshadow such an unfortunate end.

At the first battle of Bull Run, however, Colonel Miles was accused of drunkenness. Read more »
