Gouverneur Kemble Warren - (January 8, 1830 – August 8, 1882) was an American civil engineer and Union Army general during the American Civil War. He is best
remembered for arranging the last-minute defense of Little Round Top during the Battle of Gettysburg and is often referred to as the "Hero of Little Round Top."
His subsequent service as a corps commander and his remaining military career were ruined during the Battle of Five Forks, when he was relieved of command of the V Corps
by Philip Sheridan, who claimed that Warren had moved too slowly. Following the war Warren served as an engineer for 17 years, building railroads, with assignments
along the Mississippi River, achieving the rank of Lieutenant Colonel in 1879. But the career that had shown so much promise at Gettysburg was ruined. He urgently
requested a court of inquiry to exonerate him from the stigma of Sheridan's action. Numerous requests were ignored or refused until Ulysses S. Grant retired from the
presidency. President Rutherford B. Hayes ordered a court of inquiry that convened in 1879 and, after hearing testimony from dozens of witnesses over 100 days, found
that Sheridan's relief of Warren had been unjustified. On November 21, 1881 President Chester Alan Arthur directed that the findings be published; no other action was
taken. Unfortunately for Warren, these results were not published until after his death
