|Death: ||May 28, 1863|
Co. B, 13th WVI
"During the winter of 1862 and 1863 Company B was stationed in the Kanawha Valley at Charleston.
The Constitutional Convention which had met at Wheeling on February 19, 1863 set an election date which was the 28th of May, and was to be the first election in the newly formed state. David Bailey was in Leon on that day.
After voting he went to the store hoping to hear some news. Unknown to David Bailey, the storekeeper had vowed to kill the next Union soldier that he saw. With no thought of violence in this once friendly little town, David Bailey approached the store where some men had congregated. As he entered he was struck down with a scale weight. Death followed shortly."
