Philippe Regis Denis de Keredern de Trobriand (1816-1897)
Born in France, the wealthy Count De Trobriand was a soldier with literary pretensions. As a colonel in New York, De Trobriand became an American citizen and organized the Frenchmen of the Fifty-Fifth Infantry, referred to as the "red-legged Fifth-Fifth," because of their French uniforms. De Trobriand ended the war as a brevet major general in the volunteers, a rank achieved by his highly meritorious service during the Appomattox campaign. He was the author of poetry, novels, and military reminiscences.
