Joseph W. McClurg (1818-1900)

Joseph Washington McClurg was a congressman and governor of Missouri. At the outbreak of the Civil War, McClurg organized, equipped (at considerable financial loss), and commanded a home-guard unit, called the Osage Regiment of the Missouri volunteers. He later became colonel of the 8th cavalry, Missouri militia, but resigned to take his seat in Congress. A Radical Republican, he was elected to Congress in 1862 and served three terms. In 1868 he resigned his seat in the House to run for governor of Missouri. He was elected by an overwhelming majority.
