A new book that makes a case that Millard Fillmore acted decisively and powerfully to prevent a war between the states in 1850, and thereby force the Compromise of 1850.

Among its many other virtues, Mark J. Stegmaier’s Texas, New Mexico, & The Compromise of 1850: Boundary Dispute & Sectional Crisis contains a detailed and balanced discussion of Millard Fillmore’s contributions toward the resolution of the Crisis of 1850.

A cartoon from April 1850 shows how raw were some of the emotions among national leaders, especiallyi n the Senate. It illustrates an incident that occurred April 17, 1850, when Sen. Henry S. Foote of Mississippi drew a pistol on Missouri’s Sen. Thomas Hart Benton. Elektratig used the cartoon to illustrate his post; it’s good enough to repeat here.


Cartoon by Edward Williams Clay, from the Library of Congress Collection. LOC Summary: A somewhat tongue-in-cheek dramatization of the moment during the heated debate in the Senate over the admission of California as a free state when Mississippi senator Henry S. Foote drew a pistol on Thomas Hart Benton of Missouri. In the cartoon Benton (center) throws open his coat and defiantly states, "Get out of the way, and let the assassin fire! let the scoundrel use his weapon! I have no arm's! I did not come here to assassinate!" He is attended by two men, one of them North Carolina senator Willie P. Mangum (on the left). Foote, restrained from behind by South Carolina's Andrew Pickens Butler and calmed by Daniel Stevens Dickinson of New York (to whom he later handed over the pistol), still aims his weapon at Benton saying, "I only meant to defend myself!" In the background Vice President Fillmore, presiding, wields his gavel and calls for order. Behind Foote another senator cries, "For God's sake Gentlemen Order!" To the right of Benton stand Henry Clay and (far right) Daniel Webster. Clay puns, "It's a ridiculous matter, I apprehend there is no danger on foot!" Visitors in the galleries flee in panic.

How Dad was named William Frederick:
How Dad was named William Frederick:
The last German emperor, Kaiser Wilhelm II, full name was ”Frederick William Victor Albert of Prussia.” At that time many believed he unleashed WWI and thus he was despised by most Americans.
When my father (b. 1918) was born, the intent was to name him after his grandfather, Federico Guglielmo (b. 1866). Federico had Americanized his name to Frederick William. The issue was clear : you could not name a child after what might appear to be the most hated man in the world – the German Kaiser. So, it was decided to switch first and middle names to William Frederick.

We believe this photo was from a trip to Italy in 1927 to visit family. William Frederick Aimone, with his grandfather, Federico Aimone, made this trip. It could be from the Strona, Italy area. We do not know any of the people in this photo.
