George Franklin Edmunds (1828-1919)

A lawyer and U.S. senator, Edmunds was born in Vermont. In 1866 Edmunds was appointed to replace Senator Solomon Foot. It was Edmunds's vote that was decisive in overriding President Andrew Johnson's veto of the Civil Rights Bill. During the 1880s Edmunds was reputed to be the most successful constitutional lawyer in the Senate. In 1891 Edmunds resigned the Senate.
