824-1881 Lawyer; born in Moretown, Vt., Dec. 22, 1824; was admitted to the Vermont bar in 1847; settled in Wisconsin in the following year, and later in Milwaukee, Mich. During the Civil War he was a stanch Union man. In March, 1868, with Lyman Trumbull, he represented the government in the famous McCardle trial, which involved the validity of the reconstruction act of Congress of March 7, 1867. Up to that time this was the most important cause ever argued before the United States Supreme Court, and Carpenter and Trumbull won. After his argument was completed Secretary Stanton put his arms around his neck, exclaiming, Carpenter, you have saved us! Later Judge Black spoke of him as the finest constitutional lawyer in the United States. He was a member of the United States Senate in 1869-75 and 1879-81. He was counsel for Samuel J. Tilden before the Electoral Commission in 1877. His greatest speeches in the Senate include his defence of President Grant against the attack of Cha

Li that he was then as good a Whig as ever; and Trumbull went to work in his part of the State preachiass, for the Republican party to stand upon. Trumbull, too, was one of our own contemporaries. He ng out that arrangement. Matheny states that Trumbull broke faith; that the bargain was that Lincshould be the Senator in Shields's place, and Trumbull was to wait for mine; and the story goes that Trumbull cheated Lincoln, having control of four or five abolitionized Democrats who were holding onds that he shall have the place intended for Trumbull, as Trumbull cheated him and got his; and TruTrumbull is stumping the State, traducing me for the purpose of securing the position for Lincoln, in o[2 more...]
Harper's Encyclopedia of United States History (ed. Benson Lossing), Durand, Asher Brown, 1796-1886 (search)
Durand, Asher Brown, 1796-1886 Painter and engraver; born in Jefferson, N. J., Aug. 21, 1796. His paternal ancestors were Huguenots. His father was a watch-maker, and in his shop he learned engraving. In 1812 he became an apprentice to Peter Maverick, an engraver on copper-plate, and became his partner in 1817. Mr. Durand's first large work was his engraving on copper of Trumbull's Declaration of Independence. He was engaged upon it a year, and it gave him a great reputation His engravings of Musidora and Ariadne (the latter from Vanderlyn's painting place him among the first line-engravers of his time. In 1835 he abandoned that art for painting, and became one of the best of American landscape-painters. His pictures are always well selected as subjects, pleasing in tone, and exquisite in coloring. Mr. Durand was one of the first officers of the National Academy of Design, and was its president for several years. He died in South Orange, N. J., Sept. 17, 1886, leaving Gen
Harper's Encyclopedia of United States History (ed. Benson Lossing), Elliott, Charles Loring, 1812-1868 (search)
Elliott, Charles Loring, 1812-1868 Painter; born in Scipio, N. Y., in December, 1812; was the son of an architect, who prepared him for that profession. He became a pupil of Trumbull, in New York, and afterwards of Quidor, a painter of fancy-pieces. Having acquired the technicalities of the art, his chief employment for a time was copying engravings in oil, and afterwards he attempted portraits. He practised portrait-painting in the interior of New York for about ten years, when he went to the city (1845), where he soon rose to the head of his profession as a portrait-painter. It is said that he painted 700 portraits, many of them of distinguished men. His likenesses were always remarkable for fidelity, and for beauty and vigor of coloring. He died in Albany, Aug. 25, 1868.

Custis (afterwards Mrs. Washington) and her husband, about 1756. He was an Englishman. At the period of the Revolution, Charles Wilson Peale, who had learned the art from Hesselius, a portraitpainter, was the only American, if we except young Trumbull, who might be called a good artist, for Copley had gone to England. So it was that the fine art of painting was introduced. At that time there were no professional architects in the country. Plans for churches, other than the ordinary builrmed late in 1802, but it was not incorporated until 1808. Meanwhile Mr. Livingston had obtained fine plaster copies of ancient statues and sent them over. In the board of managers were distinguished citizens, but there was only one artist—Colonel Trumbull. It bore the corporate title of Academy of Fine Arts. It had a feeble existence, though it numbered among its honorary members King George IV. of England, and the Emperor Napoleon, who contributed liberally to its establishment. De Witt

in which I acknowledged and accepted your nomination at our meeting on the 12th. That your convention saw fit to accord its highest honor to one who had been prominently and pointedly opposed to your party in the earnest and sometimes angry controversies of the last forty years is essentially noteworthy. That many of you originally preferred that the Liberal Republicans should present another candidate for President, and would more readily have united with us in the support of Adams or Trumbull, Davis or Brown, is well known. I owe my adoption at Baltimore wholly to the fact that I had already been nominated at Cincinnati, and that a concentration of forces upon any new ticket had been proved impracticable. Gratified as I am at your concurrence in the nominations, certain as I am that you would not have thus concurred had you not deemed me upright and capable, I find nothing in the circumstance calculated to inflame vanity or nourish self-conceit. But that your convention saw
