William Brisbane was born September 14, 1823. He was living in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania when he was commissioned Captain of Company C, 8th Pennsylvania Infantry on April 22, 1861. The 8th was part of the command of General Robert Patterson assigned to the Shenandoah Valley and therefore missed the 1st Battle at Bull Run. Brisbane was mustered out on July 29, 1861 at Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

Two days later, on July 31, 1861, Brisbane was commissioned Lieutenant Colonel of the 49th Pennsylvania Infantry. With the 49th Brisbane served in the Peninsula Campaign and at Antietam. He resigned October 15, 1862. Later, during the Gettysburg Campaign, he led a brigade of Pennsylvania Militia. He died on February 7, 1880 and is buried in Laurel Hill Cemetery in Philadelphia.
