David Bremner Henderson
Birth: Mar. 14, 1840
Old Deer
Aberdeenshire, Scotland
Death: Feb. 25, 1906
Dubuque County
Iowa, USA

Civil War Union Army Officer, US Congressman. At the start of the Civil War he enlisted in the 12th Iowa Volunteer Infantry, rising from Private to 1st Lieutenant of Company C. He received a wound in the neck during the Union Army capture of Fort Donelson in February 1862, and was wounded in the foot during the October 1862 Battle of Corinth, Mississippi. The second wound eventually necessitated the amputation of part of his leg, which would cause his discharge in February 1863. In June 1864 he was commissioned Colonel and commander of the 46th Iowa Volunteer Infantry, a unit that served for 100 Days enlistment. The regiment served as garrison and rear guard duty in the Army under Major General William T. Sherman and was mustered out in September 1864. After the war David B. Henderson studied law and was admitted to the Iowa Bar Association. He was elected as a Republican to represent Iowa's 3rd Congressional District in the United States House of Representative, serving from 1883 to 1903, and serving as Speaker of the House from 1899 to 1903.
