Before being elected governor he was the presiding officer in the stste senate. When he was New Hamphire's governor one of his policies was for the state to borrow money to pay the enlistment bounties. Then for the reelection He provided for furloughs and free transportation for soldiers to return back to New Hampshire for the elections as He opposed absentee voting in the field.
