BROWN, Albert Gallatin, statesman, born in Chester District, South Carolina, 31 May, 1813; died near Jacksonville, Mississippi, 12 June, 1880. His parents removed to Mississippi while he was a child. He took a boyish interest in military affairs, and was made a brigadier-general in the state militia when only nineteen years of age. He adopted the law as a profession, gaining admission to the bar in 1834, and was a member of the state legislature from 1835 till 1839, and member of congress from Mississippi in 1840-'1. He was also a judge of the circuit superior court in 1841-'3 ; governor of Mississippi on successive re-elections from 1843 till 1848; again member of congress from 1848 till 1854; and United States senator from 1854 till 1858. He was re-elected for six years, beginning 4 March, 1859, but resigned in 1861 to join in the rebellion. His colleague in the United States senate at the time was Jefferson Davis, and they both attended the caucus of seceding senators, held in Washington 6 January, 1861. He was an uncompromising adherent of the Democratic Party in the south. A volume of his speeches was published in 1859.
