About Ambrose Burnside
Ambrose Burnside was an American soldier and politician known for successfully commanding the Union Army in several battles during the American Civil War. His successful career in the military was marred by his defeat in a number of important battles, most notably the Battle of the Crater, which led to his resignation. After the Civil War, he went on to become the 30th Governor of Rhode Island, a position he held from 1866 to 1869. He also served as the U.S. Senator from Rhode Island from 1875 until his death in 1881.
He was the fourth of the nine children born to Pamela and Edghill Burnside. In 1852, he got married to Mary Richmond Bishop. The marriage produced no children and lasted until his death.
He was known for his unusual facial hairstyle, which is now known as sideburns. The term "sideburns" was created from his last name "Burnside".
