John Turchin immigrated to the United States after fleeing tsarist Russia with his wife Nadine. He came from a military family in the Ukraine, and was well-suited to fighting as a Union General. He is credited with inspiring a fierce military strategy against the Confederate Army. In his memoir of the Battle of Chickamauga, he recounts his disgust with American Slavery and his disatisfaction with many Union Army leaders. Turchin was court-martialed but then reinstated by Lincoln himself into the Union Army in 1862. He was an important Union General, serving with his wife (a nurse) in the U.S. Civil War. Good+.
