William Passmore Carlin
William Passmore Carlin (1829-1903) was a native of Illinois who
graduated from West Point in 1850 and served on frontier duty and
in Utah before the Civil War. Carlin began his Civil War career as
colonel of the 38th Illinois Infantry and served in the early battles
in Missouri and Mississippi. He commanded troops in the important
battles of Perryville, Stones River, Liberty Gap, Chickamauga,
Missionary Ridge, Buzzard Roost, Resaca, Kennesaw Mountain,
the siege of Atlanta, Jonesboro, and Bentonville. A successful
brigade and division commander from Perryville to Sherman's
March to the Sea and march through the Carolinas until the end
of the war, Carlin retired in 1893 as a brigadier general.
