There are two historical figures called "Henry H. Sibley" and who were contemporary cousins. One of them was the first governor of the state of Minnesota and the other was a Confederate general in the Civil War. Henry Hastings Sibley (1811-1891) was born on February 20, 1811 in Detroit (later Michigan). He served as a territorial representative and was elected governor of Minnesota became a state May 11, 1858. His term of office was May 24, 1858 January 2, 1860. Henry Hopkins Sibley (1816-1876) was born May 25, 1816, in Natchitoches, Louisiana. He was raised in Missouri, graduated from West Point, and served in several positions as an officer in the Army. He resigned his charge in 1861, and led the Southern armies in the unsuccessful New Mexico campaign in 1862.
