The first governor of Washington Territory, appointed by President Pierce in 1853, Isaac Stevens is also known for his survey of a northern railroad line that he completed as he traveled slowly across the continent on the way to his new position.

His first military campaign was during the Mexican-American War in the 1840s, where he rose to the rank of Major (and was also seriously wounded). When the Civil War began, about the time of this photo, Stevens was commissioned in the Army again, and was soon promoted to general. He was killed in the Battle of Chantilly in 1862.
