Lovell H. Rousseau (1818-1869)

Lovell Harrison Rousseau was a major general of volunteers in the Union Army. A Kentucky native, he raised Union volunteers there in an undercover way. Rousseau was promoted to brigadier general in October 1861 and major general in October 1862. In 1865 he resigned, after being elected to the House of Representatives as a Radical Republican. Criticized for caning Congressman Josiah Grinnell, he resigned but was quickly re-elected. Andrew Johnson rewarded Rousseau for his support with a promotion to brigadier general in the regular army and brevet major general for war service.
