Biography | show moreshow less
Caleb Cushing (1800-1879), a Democrat, represented his Massachusetts district in the US Congress (1835-1843). After the Senate rejected his nomination to be President Tyler's Secretary of the Treasury, Tyler appointed him US Minister to China (1843-1845), where he negotiated the first treaty between the two nations. During the Mexican War, Cushing raised, equipped and commanded a volunteer regiment, seeing no combat there. After two failed runs for Governor of Massachusetts and a year on that State's Supreme Judicial Court, he served as US Attorney General under President Pierce (1853-1857).
