Kearny Jr., Philip
Philip Kearny Jr. (1815-1862) was General Kearny’s nephew. He was an illustrious military officer, notable for his leadership in the Mexican American War and in the American Civil War. He was killed in action in the 1862 Battle of Chantilly in Virginia. Kearny Jr. studied cavalry tactics in France at Saumur in 1839, and fought with the Chasseurs d’Afrique in Algeria, where he was nicknamed “Kearny le magnifique.” He returned to the United States in 1840, and was back in France in 1859, this time fighting the Austrians in Italy, then with Napoleon III’s Imperial Guard at the Battle of Solferino. He was awarded the French Légion d’honneur, becoming the first U.S. citizen to receive this honor for military service.
