Ambrose Everett Burnside (May 23, 1824 – September 13, 1881) was an American army officer and politician who became a senior Union general in the Civil War and three times Governor of Rhode Island, as well as being a successful inventor and industrialist. He is mainly remembered for two disastrous defeats, at Fredericksburg and the Battle of the Crater. Although an inquiry cleared him of blame in the latter case, he never regained credibility as an army commander. His spectacular growth of whiskers became known as "sideburns," deriving from the two parts of his surname.
