Levi Lincoln, Jr. (October 25, 1782 – May 29, 1868) was an American lawyer and politician from Worcester, Massachusetts. He was the 13th Governor of Massachusetts (1825–1834) and represented the state in the U.S. Congress (1834–1841). Lincoln was the longest consecutive-serving governor in Massachusetts' history at 9 years from 1825 to 1834.
By the mid-1820s the Federalist Party had completely collapsed, and Lincoln was the selected by both it and the Democratic-Republicans as a gubernatorial candidate. He consequently won the 1825 election with a resounding 80% of the vote; he was reelected annually until 1834. In 1835 he won election to the United States House of Representatives as a Whig, serving until he stepped down in 1841. President William Henry Harrison appointed him Collector of the Port of Boston that year. In 1844 Lincoln won election to the state senate, representing Worcester.
In 1848 Worcester was incorporated as a city, and Lincoln was elected its first mayor, a post he held for one year. He then retired from active politics, and died in Worcester on May 29, 1868.
William Schouler (December 31, 1814–October 24, 1872) was an American journalist, politician and general in the Union Army during the American Civil War.
Schouler was a delegate at the 1853 Massachusetts State Constitutional Convention. At this convention Schouler expressed the view that corporations were merely devices for people to avoid paying debts.
Later in 1853 Schouler moved to Ohio. He was an editor for the Cincinnati Gazette and then the State Journal of Columbus. In 1855 he was appointed Adjutant-General of Ohio by Salmon P. Chase.
In 1858 Schouler moved back to Boston. In 1860 he was appointed Adjutant General of Massachusetts, in which position he remained until 1867. Schouler later served one term in the Massachusetts State Senate. He also wrote the two volume History of Massachusetts in the Civil War.
