Biographical Note

Army officer, lawyer, and United States Senator Thomas Ward Osborn was born in Scotch Plains, New Jersey, on March 9, 1836. After graduating from Colgate University's predecessor institution Madison University in 1860, Ward studied law in Watertown, New York. He was admitted to the New York State bar in 1861.

Osborn entered the United States Army in 1861. While serving with Battery D of the First New York Light Artillery, he rose in rank from lieutenant, to captain, to major, and, ultimately, in 1864-1865, chief of artillery under General Howard. Following the Civil War he was named Colonel and, later, Assistant Commissioner of the Bureau of Refugees in the State of Florida, and Chief of the Freedmen's Bureau from 1865 to 1866. After practicing law in Florida, he served as a United States Senator for Florida from 1868 to 1873.

He returned to New York after the conclusion of his Senate term in 1873, and died in New York City on December 18, 1898.
