CDV of BBG David Ramsey Clendenin, 8th Ill. Cav., Involved in Trial of Lincoln Conspirators
4/30/2014 - Firearms and Militaria: Live Salesroom Auction
Clendenin, David Ramsay (1830-1895).  Clendenin enlisted in September 1861 as a Major. He was commissioned into F&S of the 8th IL Cav. He was promoted to Lt. Col. the following year, and received brevets for Colonel (2.20.65) and Brig. Gen. (7.11.65). He mustered out in July 1865 at Benton Barracks in St. Louis. No photographer's identification, but mount has an orange border.

Clendenin was one of the 9-member commission that tried the Lincoln conspirators.

The 8th Illinois was a hard-fighting unit in the eastern theater, playing major roles at Warrenton, Mechanicsville, Gaines' Mill, Malvern Hill, Monocacy Church, Boonesboro, Antietam - and that was just the beginning. It was engaged in dozens of fights including Fredericksburg, Manassas, Gettysburg, Brandy Station, etc. It is the first unit to have veteranized, many offering to re-enlist before the end of their term of service. They were even involved in thwarting General Early's raid in June 1865.
