From his childhood in Rhode Island to his living his final years with his daughter in New Jersey, George Sears Greene had contributed a vital role in the health and welfare of America. He applied his West Point education to building railroads and reservoirs (as a Civil Engineer), meeting the growing demands of the New England and Mid-Atlantic States. Greene commanded troops during the Civil War at Cedar Mountain, Antietam, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, and Wauhatchie. Disobeying orders to leave his position on July 2nd at Culp's Hill (Gettysburg), Greene's actions preserved the Union, the turning point of the war.
