Harvey Strong Chatfield was born July 19, 1837 in New York. At the time of the outbreak of the Civil War he was practicing law.

Over a year later on September 5, 1863 Chatfield was commissioned Captain in Company A, of the 78th New York Infantry. He was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel on February 2, 1864.
