He was sort of a big name politician from CT during his day. He seemed to disappear, strangely, once he became a committee chair. He has few actions after the Civil War.

His actions:

Hawley, Joseph R 1852 Abolitionist who supports Free Soil nom John P Hale for pres
Hawley, Joseph R 1856 Role in establishing the GOP in CT
Hawley, Joseph R 1864 Commands division at Siege of Petersburg; promoted to Brig Gen of volunteers
Hawley, Joseph R 1865 Promoted to brevet Maj Gen after war
Hawley, Joseph R 1884 Rep candidate for pres
Hawley, Joseph R 1894 Influential Senate Military Affairs Committee Chair. Serves 11 straight years including during Spanish-American War. Has served 6 years in past. So 17 total years.
