BLAIR

I.142.1

BLAIR, Francis P., Jr., was born at Lexington, Ky, Feb. 19, 1821, and died at St. Louis, July 8, 1875. He was graduated at Princeton in 1841, began practicing law in St. Louis, and served as a representative in congress, (free soil), 1857-62. In the Union army he reached the rank of major general. Until 1868 he was a republican, but then, because of his opposition to reconstruction by congress, was the candidate of the democratic party for vice-president. He was United States senator, 1871-73.
