The financier of the Civil War for the Union government, descended from Janet Ralston, the daughter of a Scottish settler. He became U. S. secretary of the treasury during the war and refined the national banking system. Before the war he had been a lawyer who defended "conductors" on the Underground Railroad, governor of Ohio and a U. S. senator. His ambition to be president led Lincoln to fire him from the cabinet, but Lincoln later named him chief justice of the U. S. Supreme Court.
