CUTTER, George Washington, poet, born in Massachusetts in 1801; died in Washington, D. C., 24 December 1865. He studied law, and followed his profession with success in Kentucky until about 1845. During the Mexican war he raised a company of infantry, of which he became captain, and which subsequently was included in the 2d Kentucky volunteers under Colonel McKee. Later he married Miss Drake, an actress of Cincinnati, and for a time made his home in Covington, Kentucky. Afterward he became interested in politics, and was known favorably as an eloquent orator. His services were rewarded with a clerkship in the treasury department, an office that he retained during several administrations. "The Song of Steam," "The Song of the Lightning," and "E Pluribus Unum," are his best-known pieces. He published "Buena Vista and other Poems" (Cincinnati, 1848); " Song of ,Steam and other Poems" (1857); and "Poems, National and Patriotic" (Philadelphia, 1857).
