GARESCHE, Julius Peter, soldier, born in Cuba in 1821; died near Stone River, Tennessee, 31 December 1862. He was graduated at the United States military academy in 1841, and entered the army as 2d lieutenant of the 4th artillery. From 1841 till 1846 he served on frontier and garrison duty, and afterward with distinction in the Mexican war. He was appointed assistant adjutant general in 1855. At the beginning of the civil war he applied for active service, and was appointed chief of staff to General William S. Rosecrans, of the Army of the Cumberland. He had previously declined the commission of brigadier-general of volunteers, and remained a lieutenant colonel in the regular army. At the battle of Stone River, in Tennessee, 31 "Dec., 1862, in a gallant attempt to regain the day which then appeared to be lost, Colonel Gareschi dashed forward at the head of his column, but was struck in the head by a cannon-ball and instantly killed.
