From Paul J. Smith's Weekly History Revue:
August 27th - Paul J. Smith Writes:
One of the unsung figures of the Civil War passed away in New York on this date in 1881 at the age of 80. He wasn't a soldier but rather a banker. His name was J(ames) F(ranklin) D(oughty) Lanier. He was born in North Carolina. When he was growing up his family moved to Bourbon County, Kentucky, then Eaton, Ohio, before settling in the bustling Ohio River town of Madison, Indiana.
He became a lawyer in Madison (he had gone to school at Transylvania University in Kentucky) and then a banker. In the early 1800's Madison was strategically located on the river commerce route between Louisville and Cincinnati. It also served as a gateway to the rest of Indiana so Lanier prospered. He moved from there to New York to take his shot at Wall Street and founded a successful brokerage firm there.
Lanier lent the state about $640K, a staggering sum for the times, with no assurances that it would ever be paid back. Over some years it was.
Lanier's impressive Madison mansion overlooking the Ohio River was the first official state historic site, now operated by the state of Indiana and open to the public. It is worth a visit.
