Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Ephraim Hubbard Foster (September 17, 1794 - September 6, 1854) twice served as a United States Senator from Tennessee. During his political career, he was a member of the Whig Party. Foster was born near Bardstown, Kentucky in Nelson County. As an infant he moved with his parents to Tennessee, where they settled in the Nashville area. He later graduated from Cumberland College (1813) and later studied law, being admitted to the bar in 1820. He also served in the Creek War and was for a time private secretary to General Andrew Jackson. He was a member of the Tennessee House of Representatives from 1829 to 1831 and again from 1835 to 1837, serving each time as Speaker. Upon the resignation from the U.S. Senate of Felix Grundy to accept appointment as United States Attorney General, the Tennessee General Assembly elected Foster his successor. He served in the Senate for the first time from September 17, 1838 to March 3, 1839.show more
