James Harvey Childs1

M, #60522, b. 4 July 1834
     James Harvey Childs was born on 4 July 1834 at Pittsburgh, Allegheny Co., PA.1 He was the son of Harvey Childs and Jane Bailey Lowrie.1 James Harvey Childs married Mary Howard Howe, daughter of Thomas M. Howe, on 14 July 1857.1
     James Harvey Childs attended Miami College in 1852 at Oxford, Butler Co., OH.1 He in 1853 spent a year with the corps of engineers in surveying the route of the Pittsburgh and Connellsville Railway. Col. Childs soon after entered regular business life, becoming a partner in a large manufacturing establishment. The breaking out of war in 1861 found him enrolled with the first to respond to the call for troops, in the 12th Regt., Pennsyvania Volunteers. During the three months' service he was first lieutenant of the 'City Guard' Company of Pittsburgh. Upon the disbandment of the 12th Regiment, though surrounded by every home allurement, Col. Childs quickly arranged his affairs for an indefinite absence; quietly saying to his family that 'a man's first duty is to his country, and that no alternative presented itself to him but to remain in the field until relieved by death or the close of the war.' On Oct.18, 1861, he was again mustered into service as Lieut. Col. of the 4th Penna Cavalry and at once joined his regiment. On March 12, 1862, promoted to Colonel, the summons came to proceed to the Peninsula. Upon arriving he was ordered with the Pennsylvania Reserves to the front and took position the night before the series of terrible struggles known as the 'seven days battles.' An incident of the first day is worthy of note, as it established his reputation for cool judgment. His regiment and the 5th Regt. Cavalry were ordered to fall back from a charge upon the enemy's infantry, who were found impregnably entrenched against cavalry. The regulars left the field at a trot; Col. Childs to the surprise of the division forced his men to leave at a walk. When asked his reason, he replied it might do to trot off a regiment accustomed to fire, but such an experiment tried on untested troops like his would result in the trot becoming a gallop, and the gallop a stampede, and he did not propose to have his men run from the first fire. A few days later his undaunted firmness saved his command from disastrous rout. By the illness of Gen. Averill, to whose brigade the 4th Penna. Cav. was attached, Col. Childs came into command and was ordered by Gen. McClellan to pursue the flying column of the enemy's cavalry. Returning from the pursuit on the day of the battle of South Mountain, the brigade advanced to the Antietam river. The following morning, Sept. 17,1862, was fought the battle of Antietam. Col. Childs, while leading his brigade under a heavy fire, was struck in the thigh by a solid shot and hurled from his horse. Recognizing the fatal nature of the wound, he dispatched an aide to Gen. Pleasanton to tell him that he was dying, gave other needed official orders, then turning to his adjutant and personal friend, Capt. King of Pittsburg, confided to him his farewell messages of love to his wife and family.1
