Galusha Pennypacker (18441916) was
a Union general during the War
Between the States. He is to this day
the youngest person to hold the rank of brigadier general in the U.S.Army and the
only general too young to vote for the president who appointed him (or anybody
else, for that matter.) Only the Marquis de LaFayette was younger (at age 19) when
he became Major General in the Continental Army.
