Salmon P. Chase

Salmon Portland Chase was an American politician and jurist who provide as U.S. Senator from Ohio and the 23rd Governor of Ohio; as U.S. Treasury Secretary under President Abraham Lincoln; and as Chief Justice of the United States. In 1830, Chase moved to Cincinnati, Ohio, where he speedily gained a position of prominence at the bar. He published an annotate edition of the laws of Ohio which was long careful a standard. The death of his first wife in 1835, triggered Chase's religious reawakening and devotion to causes more aligned with his faith, including Abolition. He worked primarily with the American Sunday School Union and began defending fugitive slaves. At a time when public opinion in Cincinnati was conquered by Southern business connections, Chase, influenced probably by James G. Birney, associated himself with the anti-slavery movement. He became the head of the political reformers, as different to the Garrisonian abolitionist movement.
