Philip Kearny (1 June 1814-1 Sept. 1862) Served with French military from 1839 to 1844, where he was awarded the Cross of the Legion of Honor. Upon his return to the United States, Kearny served on the staff of the U.S. Army's commander in chief, Winfield Scott. At the beginning of the Civil War, he received commission as brigadier general as part of the Union Army. Kearny was killed near Chantilly, Va. during the Union Army's retreat following Second Manassas.
