As a corps commander he suffered two humililating defeats at Chancellorsville and Gettysburg in May and July of 1863, but recovered from the setbacks as a successful corps and later army commander of the Western Theater.
In 1865 he was appointed commissioner of the Freedman's Bureau and played a major role in the Reconstruction era and he also played a major role in the founding of Howard University.
