Biography | show moreshow less
HENRY DEARBORN (1751-1829) served in the Revolutionary War and was a colonel on General George Washington's staff at Yorktown (1781). A member of Congress from 1793-1797, Dearborn was Jefferson's Secretary of War (1801-1809). He was appointed by President Madison to replace Benjamin Lincoln as the second Collector of the Port of Boston in 1809, serving in that position until leaving to fight as a Major General in the War of 1812. Madison sought to re-appoint him as Secretary of War, but the Senate rejected the nomination. He became US Minister to Portugal instead (1822-1824). Tench Coxe, as Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Washington administration, supplied many of the statistics used in Alexander Hamilton's historic Report on Manufactures (1792). Defecting from the Federalists to the Democratic-Republicans, Coxe was rewarded by President Jefferson with appointment as Purveyor of Public Supplies.
