Brownell was a member of the 11th N.Y. Infantry (also known as Ellworth's Zouaves). He became famous for shooting James T. Jackson, the murderer of his Colonel, Elmer Ellsworth. Ellsworth was the first Union casualty of the Civil War. He was shot by Jackson, the proprietor of an Alexandria, Virginia hotel, after he tore down his Confederate flag. Brownell retaliated immediately. He is stepping on the Confederate flag that his colonel died tearing down.
