DOOLITTLE, Charles Camp, soldier, born in Burlington, Vermont, 16 March, 1832. He was educated at the High-school in Montreal, Canada, but was not graduated on account of his removal to New York city in 1847. He subsequently went to Michigan, and on 16 May, 1861, became 1st lieutenant in the 4th Michigan regiment. He was made colonel of the 18th regiment of that state on 22 July, 1862, served in the peninsular campaign, and was slightly wounded at Gaines's Mills. He served in Kentucky in 1862-'3, and in Tennessee in 1863-'4, and was in command of Decatur, Alabama, during the first day's successful defence of that town against General John B. Hood. He led a brigade at Nashville, and was in command of that city in 1865, and of the northeastern district of Louisiana in the autumn of that year. On 27 January, 1865, he was made brigadier-general of volunteers, and on 13 June he was brevetted major-general. He was mustered out on 30 November, at his own request, and since 1871 has been cashier of the Merchants' national bank, Toledo, Ohio.
