Strong Vincent (1837-1863) practiced law before enlisting in the Pennsylvania Militia at the outbreak of the Civil War. He was commissioned a lieutenant colonel and, later, colonel of the 83rd Pennsylvania, assuming command of the regiment on the death of the former commander at the Battle of Gaines' Mill. Suffering from malaria, he was placed on leave until the Battle of Fredericksburg. He was given command of the 3rd Brigade, 1st Division, Fifth Corps after its commander was killed at Chancellorsville. While in defense of Little Round Top during the second day of the Battle of Gettysburg, he was shot in the groin and thigh. Carried from the field, he lay dying at a nearby farm. He died five days later. He was brevetted brigadier general posthumously.
