There was a spontaneous response to the call for troops , not only at first , when men were easily moved by a feeling that the insult to the flag must be resented , but after the realities of an unrelenting war were understood , and its effects had been brought to many a home in the shape of maimed and disabled husbands and brothers,or only the memory of loved ones who had fallen on bloody battlegrounds remained to tell the hopes of bygone days;the love of country was overpowering,and the decimated ranks were kept steadily filled.No better commentary on the loyalty and patriotism of the county can be made than the simple statement that but six men had  to be conscripted to fill the allotted quotas. In all those long years of strife but six men went to war from Clermont against their wills , while those who rendered voluntary service numbered nearly four thousand men from every avocation of life. It is claimed , with much reason , that if the county had been accorded her proper credit for men furnished the number would have been several hundred in excess of every demand made upon her for support.

The county can boast with pardonable pride that in addition to having produced the greatest general of the Union forces - Gen. U.S. Grant - the rank and file of her soldiery were men who enrolled themselves out of a simple love of country. It is proper , therfore , to perpetuate the names of these heroic men by giving them a place in history.
