Governor of Tennessee (1809-1815)

Governor of Tennessee from 1809 to 1815. In 1790, he moved to the Southwest Territory and served as William Blount's private secretary, his half-brother. When Tennessee was admitted as a state in 1796, he was one of its first judges, and in 1807 was elected to the state legislature. He was elected governor in 1809, and served three terms, until 1815. During his governorship, he supported the War of 1812. He also sent Tennessee militia to Alabama Territory when the latter was essentially defenseless before attacks by American Indians.  -30-
