The son of a New York contractor working on the church of Notre Dame in Montreal. He was descended from American Revolutionary figures. Due to financial constraints, Cox was unable to afford a college education. He served an apprenticeship in a law firm for two years, but changed his mind about the law. He worked as a bookkeeper while studying in his spare time. In 1846, he enrolled in Oberlin College and graduated in 1850 with a degree in theology. He left his theological duties and became superintendent of the Warren, Ohio school system. He returned to his law studies and was admitted to the bar in 1853. In 1855, he helped to organize the Republican Party in Ohio. He was elected to the Ohio State Senate in 1859. He was commissioned a brigadier general in the Ohio militia in 1860 and spent the next year studying military science. He joined the Union Army at the outbreak of the Civil War and was appointed brigadier general of Ohio Volunteers. Over the ensuing years, he took part in many battles and was promoted to major general. In 1865, he was elected governor of Ohio while still in the army and served until 1868. In 1869, he was appointed Secretary of the Interior. He introduced Civil Service reforms which were unpopular and he resigned in 1871. In his later years he served in the US Congress, was dean of the Cincinnati Law School, president of the University of Cincinnati and an accomplished military historian and author. His works include Atlanta (1882), The March to the Sea: Franklin and Nashville (1882), The Second Battle of Bull Run (1882, The Battle of Franklin,Tennessee (1897) and Military Reminiscences of the Civil War (1900).
