A West Point graduate with Mexican War service and an army career, Porter served under his friend Gen. George B. McClellan during the Civil War. Porter became the scapegoat for Gen. John Pope's loss at 2nd Manassas (Bull Run), and was courtmartialed and dismissed from the service. He spent the rest of his life seeking vindication and was restored in 1886.

West Point graduate and Colonel in the Civil War who was accused, by General Pope of insubordination and his failure at Manassass, was court martialed and found guilty, stripped of his rank, removed from the army and denied the possibility of holding public office. In 1880 his case was reviewed and he was exonerated and reinstated, returned to his rank and given his pension.

Fitz-John Porter (1822-1901) was born in Portsmouth, N.H. In 1841 he entered West Point and graduated eighth in his class in 1845. From West Point he went to a distinguished career in the military until 1862 when he was blamed for the Union defeat in the Second Battle of Bull Run, court-martialed, and cashiered. In 1886, after a controversial review of new found evidence, Porter was briefly reinstated as a colonel and retired.

In 1880 General Jacob Dolson Cox (1828-1900) had sent a letter concerning the Porter case to James A. Garfield (1831-1881). In it Cox opposed the decision of the Advisory Board headed by General John M. Scholfield (1831-1906) to reinstate Porter. Garfield was to defend the original court-martial decision before the House of Representatives. The letter was published and created much controversy. Porter wrote to Cox requesting a copy of the letter so that he might defend himself against the charges. Cox complied.
