Schaff was born on December 28, 1840, to John Schaff and Charlotte Hartzell Schaff on a farm in Etna Township, Ohio. Schaff lived in Kirkersville, Ohio between 1849 and 1858 when he was appointed by Congressman Samuel S. Cox to attend the United States Military Academy. He graduated from West Point in June 1862 and was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant of Ordnance. Schaff excelled in academics and developed excellent military skills while at West Point.

Military career
Schaff served in multiple battles and campaigns during the U.S. Civil War, including the Rappahannock Campaign and the Richmond Campaign. He served under several well-known U.S. generals during the Civil War: Major General Gouverneur Warren, General Joseph Hooker, General George Meade, and General Ulysses S. Grant. His wartime experiences greatly influenced the authorship of his 20th century books and articles. Schaff resigned from the Army on December 31, 1871. He later became known as General Schaff because he was appointed Brigadier General of the Massachusetts Militia in 1880.
