Iowa – George Wallace’s Portrait
This photo shows a picture of George Wallace Jones, taken in 1844. Jones was a prominent man in the state at that time, filling in as a business visionary, being an attorney and judge, and furthermore speaking to Iowa as a senator.
He invested some time in jail during the Civil War in the wake of being arrested and held for 34 successive days because of doubts of having Confederate sympathies and was likewise known to own slaves. He was never taken to trial, however, and was released soon after, proceeding to make the most of his retirement.
