Best described here by our illustrations this exceptionally nice Grand Army of the Republic uniform consists of trousers, vest, coat and slouch hat complete with War time wool 6th Corps device as stitched in place by then Civil War veteran Bvt. Brigadier General Stephen Hart Manning. Emanating from direct descendants of the General along with his ink signed CDV as Col. & Chif. Q. M. Dept. of Texas and family lore regarding the 6th Corps device, this magnificent GAR uniform offers the General’s identification in the right shoulder lining along with the label of the General’s home town Lewiston, Maine clothier.
Born in 1834 to a family of poor patronage Stephen H. Manning was largely self-educated until 1858 when the industrious Lewiston, Maine youngster entered Bowdoin College as a sophomore in 1858, leaving college in April 1861 to join the 1st Maine Volunteer Infantry. Entering service as a Private Manning would be named Quarter Master Sargent of the 1st Maine and would, notwithstanding his absence, be awarded a full diploma from Bowdoin’s class of 1861. In September 1861 he was Commissioned by the Governor as 1st Lieut. and Regimental Qr. Master of the 5th Maine Infantry a position held until August 1862 when he was appointed acting Quarter Master, 2nd Brigade, 1st Division, 6th Corps, Army of the Potomac. In October 1862 the fast rising Manning was named acting Chief Q. M. of the 6th Corps’ 1st Division and on November 26, 1862 was Commissioned by President Abraham Lincoln as Captain and A. Q. M., U. S. Volunteers, a position he held until May 1864 when he was appointed acting Chief Quarter Master, 6th Army Corps. Brevetted Major by Lincoln for faithful and meritorious service in the campaigns before Richmond and in the Shenandoah Valley, Manning would continue his rise to Lieut. Colonel and Chief Q. M. of the 6th Corps then Chief Q. M. Provisional Corps Army of the Potomac. Appointed Colonel and Chief Q. M. Dept. of Texas. Breveted to Brig. General to date from March 13, 1865, upon his mustering out on October 5, 1866 Gen. Manning had participated in all the Civil War battles of the Army of the Potomac in which the 6th Corps had been active. Some short time after the Civil War Gen. Manning located in Wilmington, North Carolina where he operated a merchandising business until 1874 when he was elected Sheriff of New Hanover County Gen. Manning eventually returned to his family home in Lewiston, Maine where he was an active member of the Military Order of the Loyal Legion, the Grand Army of the Republic and the 5th Maine Regimental Association. He died in 1911 at age seventy-six.
