    • Henry Clay, Jr. graduated from Transylvania University in 1828. He gained an appointment to the U.S. Military Academy and graduated from West Point in 1831. He returned to Kentucky, read law, and was admitted to the bar in 1833. Clay followed in his father's footsteps as a member of the Kentucky State House of Representatives from 1835 to 1837. When the Mexican-American War neared, Clay raised a regiment, the 2nd Kentucky Volunteers. Colonel Clay led his regiment in support of Zachary Taylor's invasion force in 1846. He was killed in action, while leading a charge of his regiment in the Battle of Buena Vista, Mexico.
