BATES, Joshua H., soldier, born in Massachusetts about 1817. He was graduated at West Point in 1837 and served as a lieutenant of artillery in the Florida war, in removing the Cherokees to the west in 1838, and at Cleveland, Ohio, during the Canada border disturbances of 1839-'41. He resigned his commission, 20 July 1842, and became a lawyer in Cincinnati. In the beginning of the civil war he was commissioned a Brigadier-General of volunteers, on 27 April 1861, and organized the Ohio volunteers in Camps Harrison and Dennison, until mustered out of the service on 27 August 1861. He was a member of the sanitary commission, and when Cincinnati was threatened by the confederates in 1863, he commanded a division. After his discharge from the army he practiced law in Cincinnati, and in 1864 was elected a member of the Ohio state senate.
