MANDERSON, Charles Frederick, senator, born in Philadelphia, Pc., 9 February, 1837. He was educated in the schools of his native city, removed to Canton, Ohio, in 1856, studied law, and was admitted to the bar in 1859, and in 1860 elected city solicitor. He raised a company of three months' volunteers in April, 1861, was commissioned as captain in the 19th Ohio infantry, served in western Virginia in the summer of 1861, and when mustered out re-enlisted for the war, and was afterward attached to the Army of the Cumberland, and rose through the various grades to be colonel of his regiment, of which he took command during the battle of Shiloh. At the battle of Lovejoy Station he was so severely wounded that in April, 1865, after receiving the brevet of brigadier-general, he resigned his commission. Resuming the practice of law at Canton, Ohio, he was twice elected district attorney. He removed to Omaha, Nebraska, in November, 1869, was city attorney for six years, and in 18'71 and 1874 received the votes of both parties as a member of the Constitutional conventions of those years. He was elected as a Republican to the United States senate for the term of six years beginning on 4 March, 1883.
