Harper's Encyclopedia of United States History (ed. Benson Lossing), Dow, Neal, 1804-1897 (search)
Dow, Neal, 1804-1897 Reformer; born in Portland, Me., March 20, 1804. From the time he was a boy he was noted for his zeal in the temperance cause, and was one of the founders of the Prohibition party. In 1851 he drafted the famous prohibitory law of Maine, and was elected governor of the State the same year. In the Civil War he was commissioned colonel of the 13th Maine Volunteers; was promoted to brigadier-general; and was a prisoner of war at Mobile and in Libby prison. In 1880 he was the candidate of the Prohibition party for President, and in 1894 temperance organizations throughout the world observed his ninetieth birthday. He died in Portland, Me., Oct. 2, 1897.
Harper's Encyclopedia of United States History (ed. Benson Lossing), Palmer, Erastus 1817- (search)
Palmer, Erastus 1817- Dow, sculptor; born in Pompey, Onondaga co., N. Y., April 2, 1817. Until he was twenty-nine years of age he was a carpenter, when he began cameo-cutting for jewelry, which was then fashionable. This business injured his eyesight, and he attempted sculpture, at which he succeeded at the age of thirty-five. His first work in marble was an ideal bust of the infant Ceres, which was exhibited at the Academy of Design, New York. It was followed by two exquisite bas-reliefs representing the morning and evening star. Mr. Palmer's works in bas-relief and statuary are highly esteemed. He produced more than 100 works in marble. His Angel of the resurrection, at the entrance to the Rural Cemetery at Albany, and The White captive, in the Metropolitan Museum, New York City, command the highest admiration. He went to Europe for the first time in 1873, and in 1873-74 completed a statue of Robert R. Livingston for the national Capitol.
