Samuel Wylie Crawford (Wikipedia) was the surgeon on duty at Fort Sumter, South Carolina, during the Confederate bombardment in 1861, which represented the start of the Civil War. Despite his purely medical background, he was in command of several of the artillery pieces returning fire from the fort.    A month after Fort Sumter, Crawford decided on a fundamental career change and accepted a commission as a major in the 13th U.S. Infantry.

"Counting the three dead union miners, twenty-three were murdered in the Herrin Massacre. Those ultimately tried for the murders were all acquitted by a local jury. A coroner's jury blamed the murders on "acts direct and indirect of officials of the Southern Illinois Coal Company."
