CDV is a full standing view of Pillars in a dark commercial sack coat with shoulder straps and dark trousers. At his waist is his sword belt with empty scabbard attached. He is posed with his Model 1850 Foot Officers sword in front of him.

Photo has good clarity and passable contrast, would like to see it just a bit darker. Paper and mount have just minor surface dirt. Bottom center of mount has a period ink signature that reads “RESPECTFULLY I. S. PILLARS.”

Isaiah Pillars was born March 17, 1833 in Jefferson County, Ohio. At age sixteen, he began teaching school, and attended the Seneca County Academy and Heidelberg College in Tiffin. He read law in the office of his brother James Pillars. He was admitted to the bar at age 21 and commenced practice at Lima, Ohio in 1855. In 1862 he was made commandant of Camp Lima by Governor Tod with rank Colonel, and organized the 99th, 118th and 81st Ohio Infantry regiments.

In 1866 Pillars was elected Prosecuting Attorney of Allen County, and was elected as a Democrat to the Ohio House of representatives in 1871 for the 60th General Assembly, 1872-1873. He vigorously opposed a tax to support railroad construction, and was vindicated when the Ohio Supreme Court found the tax unconstitutional.

In 1877, Pillars was elected Ohio Attorney General, defeating Republican George K. Nash. He lost to Nash for re-election in 1879. Pillars had been a Republican until 1864, but became a Democrat at that time.

Pillars died at Lima, Ohio September 13, 1895 and is buried there in Woodlawn Cemetery.  [AD]
