Adin B. Underwood (1828-1888)
Adin Ballou Underwood was a brevet major general of volunteers in the Union Army. A Massachusetts lawyer, educated at Harvard, he was commissioned a captain in May, 1861. At Wauhatchie his leg was shattered; doctors did not perform the usual amputation and when the bones rejoined, one leg was four inches shorter than the other. As a result, Underwood was removed from active service and made brigadier general in November, 1863. He was brevetted major general at the war's close.
