Biography of Orville E. Babcock

American brevet Brigadier General, Aide-de-Camp to Ulysses S. Grant during the Civil War and Private Secretary to Grant during his presidency, 1869-1877.

Born December 25, 1835 in Franklin, Vermont, Babcock attended West Point and graduated third in a class of forty-five in 1861. Following his graduation, he was assigned to the engineer corps as a second lieutenant. During the Civil War he served on the staff of General W.B. Franklin and was made acting chief engineer of the Department of Ohio. In 1864, he was promoted to lieutenant colonel and made an aide-de-camp for General Ulysses S. Grant. Babcock served under Grant at the battles of the Wilderness, Spotsylvania, and Cold Harbor and was responsible for delivering Grant’s demand for surrender to Robert E. Lee as well as arranging the meeting between Grant and Lee at Appomattox, Virginia, where the terms of surrender were finalized.

Following the Civil War, Babcock continued to serve as an aide-de-camp to Grant and, following Grant’s election in 1869, worked as the private secretary to the Commander-in-Chief. In this capacity, Babcock traveled that year to Santo Domingo to further Grant’s attempt to annex the country. In 1875, Babcock was indicted on charges that he conspired with the “Whiskey Ring” to de-fraud the government of tax money. Grant voluntarily testified on Babcock’s behalf and Babcock was acquitted. He retired from politics in 1877 and was appointed Chief Engineer of the 5th and 6th Lighthouse Districts.

Babcock married Anne Eliza Campbell on Nov. 8, 1866. They had four sons: Campbell E., Orville E., Jr, Adolph B., and Benjamin, who died in infancy. Orville E. Babcock drowned on June 2, 1884, in Mosquito Inlet, Florida, where he was working on a lighthouse.
