A-Rollin' in his Grave: Thomas Corwin (1794-1865)

Another day reading Margaret A Clapp's biography of John Bigelow, First Citizen. Apropos of which, here's another character in my novel: Mr Thomas Corwin (pictured left), Governor of Ohio, Senator, Secretary of the Treasury, Congressman, and finally, President Lincoln's Minister to Mexico. Read his 1847 "On the Mexican War" here. Here's the Wiki.
