Like the ever-expanding United States, Clinton Bowen Fisk (1828-1890) migrated westward, first from New York to Michigan, and then on to Missouri. The abolitionist businessman commanded the 33rd Missouri Volunteer Infantry after September 1862 and was later appointed its Brigadier General. His brigade mostly patrolled the southeastern Missouri and northern Arkansas border, stymieing incursions from Confederate guerillas, but his troops also saw action in Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, Kentucky, and Tennessee. Fisk served as assistant commissioner of the Freedman’s Bureau for Kentucky and Tennessee at war’s end, and was a founding member of historically black Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee.
