Biography | show moreshow less
General John Logan (1826-1886), fought with the Union Army of Tennessee, despite occasional charges that he was a Southern sympathizer. After the war, he initiated the first Decoration (Memorial) Day, May 30, 1868. Switching to the Republican Party, Logan served Illinois as a U.S. Representative and Senator and ran an unsuccessful campaign for Vice President with James G. Blaine in 1884. "May 19- 1885" on the image is highly significant, for that is the day Logan won his Senate seat for the third time after a marathon legislative vote in Illinois that went 120 ballots.
