STEVENS

III.223.1

STEVENS,Thaddeus, was born at Peacham, Vt., April 4, 1792, and died at Washington city Aug. 11, 1868. He was graduated at Dartmouth in 1814, and was admitted to the bar in Pennsylvania. After serving in the state legislature at intervals from 1833 until 1841 (See BROAD SEAL WAR), he was sent to congress as a whig 1849-53, and as a republican 1859-68. During this latter term of service he became most conspicuous as a leader in the work of reconstruction by congress. (See RECONSTRUCTION, and authorities under it.)

—See Thaddeus Stevens, Commoner, and the Memorial Addresses in the house on his death, published in 1868. Harris' Political Conflict in America was originally designed as a biography of him, but it is written from a very adverse standpoint.
