Calhoun

Calhoun held every major office in the US with the exception of President. He is also only one of two people who resigned the office of Vice President. He was a defender of slavery and the secession of the south from the USA.  Everything about the man is a contradiction.

Matthew Brady, the famous civil war and Lincoln photographer took one of his most well known ‘tin types’ of Calhoun. Downright scary looking individual !

Below is a link to the tin type and his biography.
