Biography | show moreshow less
WILLIAM EUSTIS (1753-1825), a surgeon during the Revolutionary war, represented Massachusetts in Congress (1801-1805) and was one of the managers appointed by the House of Representatives to conduct impeachment proceedings against John Pickering. Eustis served as Madison's Secretary of War from 1809-1812, U.S. Minister to the Netherlands (1814-1818), U.S. Congressman (1820-1823) and Governor of Massachusetts from 1823 until his death in 1825. The United States declared war on Great Britain on June 18, 1812. Aware that war was imminent, Eustis was emphasizing war readiness. However, despite some stirring naval victories, the first year of the war did not go well for the US, with forts lost and an expedition to Canada defeated. Eustis was assigned a share of the blame for these failures, and was obliged to resign in January 1813.
