Civil War Confederate Officer. Clement Sulivane was a native of Port Gibson, Mississippi. He was educated at the University of Virginia and Princeton, and was a practicing attorney in Cambridge, Maryland before the hostilities of 1861. He enlisted as a Private into Company A, 10th Mississippi Infantry initially, however, he transferred to the ranks of Company B, 21st Virginia Infantry on July 13, 1861. Thereafter, he received a Lieutenant's commission, and was assigned to the staff of his uncle, General Earl Van Dorn, in the autumn of 1861. His responsibilities were that of an Aide-de-Camp (ADC). On June 23, 1863, he joined the staff of General George Washington Custis Lee, and would serve this officer as Assistant Adjutant and Inspector General (AAIG) and Assistant Adjutant General (AAG) respectively. The war ended with him at the rank of Captain. He returned to Maryland, and was elected to the Maryland state senate. His uncle (Van Dorn) described Sulivane as his "favourite cousin".
