1861 Document Signed, 8th Indiana Infantry

(1828-67) Born in Frederick County, Maryland, he moved to Richmond, Indiana when he was 8 years old. During the Mexican War, he served as a private in the Regiment of Mounted Riflemen, seeing action in the battles of Contreras, Churubusco, Chapultepec, and in the capture of Mexico City. After the war, he returned to Indiana to study law, and was admitted to the bar in 1851. He served as the district attorney of Wayne County, 1852-54, and was judge of the court of common pleas, from 1856-58. When President Lincoln's call for 75,000 volunteers went out, Benton was the first man in his county to answer the call. He was unanimously elected captain of the 8th Indiana Infantry, a 90 days regiment, and colonel of the 8th, on September 5th, when the regiment was reenlisted for 3 years service, or the duration of the war. He served in the 1861 western Virginia campaign, at Elkhorn Tavern, Port Gibson, Jackson, where he was wounded, Champions Hill, Big Black River, Vicksburg, and Mobile. He was commissioned brigadier general, April 28, 1862, and brevet major general, March 26, 1865. After the war he resumed his law practice, and he died on March 14, 1867, in New Orleans. He was working at the time as an agent for the government and fell victim to the yellow fever epidemic that struck the Crescent city.

War Date Document Signed: 10 3/4 x 8 1/2, imprinted form, with vignette of spread winged eagle and shield, filled out in ink.
