He entered the West Point Academy 1837, and graduated 1842. August 24, 1843, he married Annie Eliza Hageman, of New York city, daughter of Judge Adrian Hageman, of St. Johns, New Brunswick. The following is a part of his history, as copied from the New York "Catholic News," given in connection with the presentation of the "Laetare Medal," by Bishop Montgomery, at his home near Los Angeles, California, March 15,1896: "He began his studies at West Point, at eighteen years of age, and graduated in 1842. He was graduated fifth in a class of fifty-six and elected to enter the engineer corps. In 1847 he took charge of the works of fortifying New Port Harbor, and finished the task in five years. He was justly regarded as one of the most brilliant men in the service, and when in 1853 his failing health determined him to retire, the Secretary of War, Jefferson Davis, endeavored to dissuade him. But overwork had broken him down and his resignation was reluctantly accepted in April 1854, and Lieutenant Rosecrans returned to Cincinnati.

* * * 

Then came the outbreak of the Rebellion and the fall of Fort Sumpter, and Mr. Rosecrans forgot everything but his duty to his country. He offered his services to Governor Dennison, and was appointed Chief Engineer of Ohio, with the rank of Colonel, and on the next day, June 10, 1861, was given the command of the 23rd Ohio Volunteers. His rise was very rapid. His commission as a Brigadier General of the Regular Army came within a fortnight, and he joined McClellan in Western Virginia, taking Provisional command of one of his brigades. His first battle was fought July 11, 1861, at Rich Mountain, where he won a decisive victory over General Garnett, capturing eleven hundred prisoners, and stores." * * * As the Generalís history is already before the public in part, in many publications, we will not attempt to reproduce it here in full. He resigned his commission in the army March 27, 1867, and was afterwards Minister to Mexico, served one term as a Congressman from California, and as the first Register of, the Treasury under President Cleveland. He was a zealous Catholic, converted while at West Point, 1837 -  1842, and was the means of the conversion of all his brothers, and of his mother also. His children were: William, James Addison, Adrian Louis, Lily R., Mary Louise, Anna D., Carl Frederick and Charlotte. Lily R., Anna D. and Carl F. are still living. The Generalís history is being written by his daughter, Anna D. Rosecrans.
