William F Fox

21 June 2019

William Freeman Fox was in the lumber business and a forester for most of his life – and New York’s first State Superintendent of Forests (1891). His postwar photograph is in the Annual Report of the New York Forest, Fish and Game Commission (1909).

Captain Fox led Company C of the 107th New York Infantry at Antietam and was injured by an artillery explosion there in September 1862. He was wounded twice more – at Chancellorsville, VA in May 1863 and at Resaca, GA in May 1864, by then the Lieutenant Colonel of the Regiment.
