Clover Lawn by Teemu008 on Flickr.
Clower Lawn in Bloomington, a national landmark (1872). It was the resident of David Davis, a Supreme Court justice who was a close friend of Abraham Lincoln. He was Lincoln’s campaign manager in 1860. David wrote the Ex parte Milligan decision, which determined that military tribunals could not be used against civilians. He was considered for a presidential nomination by the Liberal Republican Party in 1872. Davis received an electoral vote in the election after Greeley died shortly after election day (before votes were counted). He remained as judge until leaving to serve a single term as a U.S. Senator. David was interred in Evergreen Cemetery in Bloomington. At the time of his death, he was the largest landowner in Illinois.
