Horace Boughton (Mar 23, 1833 - Nov. 8, 1891) Union Brevet Brigadier General. A trainer lawyer pre-war, he enlisted in the Union Army on April 25, 1861 at Rochester, New York, and was commissioned a month later as a 1st Lieutenant in Company D, 13th New York Volunteer Infantry. Later promoted to Captain, he served with the 13th New York until October 20, 1862, when he was transferred to the 143rd New York Volunteer Infantry and promoted Lieutenant Colonel. When Colonel David P. DeWitt was discharged in April 1863, Horace Boughton was promoted to Colonel and commander of the regiment on April 30, 1863 to fill the vacancy. He would go on to be brevetted Brigadier General, US Volunteers on March 13, 1865 for "gallant and meritorious services during the war", and be honorably mustered out on July 20, 1865 at Washington, DC. After the war he worked for the United States Internal Revenue agency.
