520    William Henry Harrison Clayton was one of nearly 75,000 
       soldiers from Iowa to join the Union ranks during the 
       Civil War. Possessing a high school education and superior
       penmanship, Clayton served as a company clerk in the 19th 
       Infantry, witnessing battles in the Trans-Mississippi 
       theater. His diary and his correspondence with his family 
       in Van Buren County form a unique narrative of the day-to-
       day soldier life as well as an eyewitness account of 
       critical battles and a prisoner-of-war camp. Clayton 
       participated in the siege of Vicksburg and took part in 
       operations against Mobile, but his writings are unique for
       the descriptions he gives of lesser-known but pivotal 
       battles of the Civil War in the West. Fighting in the 
       Battle of Prairie Grove, the 19th Infantry sustained the 
       highest casualties of any federal regiment on the field. 
       Clayton survived that battle with only minor injuries, but
       he was later captured at the Battle of Stirling's 
       Plantation and served a period of ten months in captivity 
       at Camp Ford, Texas. Clayton's writing reveals the 
       complicated sympathies and prejudices prevalent among 
       Union soldiers and civilians of that period in the 
       country's history. He observes with great sadness the 
       brutal effects of war on the South, sympathizing with the 
       plight of refugees and lamenting the destruction of 
       property. He excoriates draft evaders and Copperheads back
       home, conveying the intra-sectional acrimony wrought by 
       civil war. Finally, his racist views toward blacks 
       demonstrate a common but ironic attitude among Union 
       soldiers whose efforts helped lead to the abolition of 
       slavery in the United States.
