Nicholas Gilman


Nicholas Gilman was the son of John Taylor Gilman, who held high civil offices in New Hampshire, and under the general government, and who was an active patriot during the Revolution. He was educated to the profession of the law, and soon assumed a distinguished position in his native State. He was appointed the colleague of John Langdon, in the convention that framed the federal constitution. In March, 1805, he was elected to a seat in the United States Senate, and he continued to be an active member of that body until 1814, when he died. He was a man of firm character and decided talent.
