Ebenezer R. Hoar (1816-1895)
Ebenezer Rockwood Hoar was the attorney general under President Grant. He was a leader of the anti-slavery movement; he vowed to "use all practicable means for the extinction of slavery." In 1859 he was named an associate justice of the supreme court of Massachusetts, where he served for ten years. Hoar proved to be an extremely effective attorney general. In 1870, when Grant was looking for the support of southern senators, Hoar diplomatically stepped down. He was then elected to Congress (1873-75). His brother George was also elected to Congress.
