Sergeant Bannerman served in M. M. Parson's 6th Division, Missouri State Guard, C.S.A. He fought at battles of Carthage & Elk Horn Tavern. He later served as Quartermaster in Parsons Brigade C.S.A. & fought in most of the battles in the Trans-Miss Theater of the Civil War. After the war he was instrumental in establishing the Confederate Veterans Home at Higginsvile, MO.
-----------------------

Although he was only 21 when the war began in Missouri, he was recognized and appreciated for the fine harness and saddlery he created. He was solicited to join the US Cavalry expedition to Kansas. They would be riding hard, to end guerilla warfare there. They did not succeed.

After the Civil War of all kinds of saddlery and equipage were needed, as were accoutrements. Bannerman and a parter set to work. Very soon they required large building, flooded with light. In 1888 work was underway on a 7 story building between 6th and Lucas in downtown St. Louis. Later the impressive building became the May Department Store building. Bannerman was ready to slow his pace.
