Description:
(1800-1866) New York politician, US Senator 1844-51. First Village President of Binghamton in 1834, state senator 1837-40, NY lieutenant governor 1843-44. In 1844 he was appointed as a Democrat to the US Senate to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Nathaniel P. Tallmadge, subsequently elected to a full term. As a senator and after, Dickinson was the leader of the conservative Hunker faction of the New York Democratic Party, eventually leader of the "Hards" who opposed reconciliation with the more radical “Barnburner” faction which left the party in 1848 to join the Free Soilers. In 1860, he supported John C. Breckinridge for President but supported the Union in the Civil War. He was elected New York Attorney General in 1861 on a ticket nominated by the War Democrats and endorsed by the Republicans. He was appointed US Commissioner for the final settlement of the Hudson Bay and Puget Sound agricultural claims in 1864. Dickinson was considered as a possible vice presidential candidate when Lincoln ran for reelection in 1864 and desired a pro-war Democrat on the Republican ticket to demonstrate support for his war policy, but the nomination went to Andrew Johnson. Dickinson supported Lincoln's reelection, and was appointed US Attorney for the Southern District of New York in 1865, serving to his death. He is the namesake of a county in Iowa and a county in Kansas. (1800-1866) New York politician, US Senator 1844-51.
