Personal Fact of Edward Bates

The first ever Attorney General of Missouri after it became a state, Edward Bates was a U.S. lawyer and politician who played a very important role during the Lincoln administration. With his serious and solemn appearance Bates was someone who was dedicated to his job and outspoken in expressing his views and opinions. A socially conscious man, he was against the practice of slavery which was rampant during his time.

As most white families of that era, his family too owned black slaves whom he freed as he felt it was an inhumane practice to keep slaves. He received good education as a child and studied law as a young man. He was very ambitious with a keen interest in politics and was elected to the house of the representatives. At one time he was even nominated to become the presidential candidate of the Republican Party though he soon realized that he could not possibly win.

Undaunted, he went on to support Abraham Lincoln who ultimately did become the President. Bates was made the Attorney General under Lincoln. The lawyer was a man of courage and would openly voice his dissent if he did not agree with the president on any issue. Along with being a successful lawyer, he was also a dedicated family man with several children.
