Joseph Brooks (November 1, 1812 - April 30, 1877) was a Republican politician in Arkansas after the Civil War. He is mainly remembered for losing the 1872 gubernatorial race in Arkansas and then leading a coup d' tat, now referred to as the Brooks-Baxter War, in 1874. Joseph Brooks was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and worked as a minister, preacher, and Methodist church official in Illinois and Missouri from 1840 to 1862. He also worked as a newspaper editor for the Central Christian Advocate in St. Louis. In 1862 he joined the Union Army as a chaplain. In 1863 Brooks, an ardent abolitionist since the 1850s, became the chaplain to the African American Third Arkansas Infantry. He remained with this regiment until February 1865.
