Salmon Chase

He served as 25th Secretary of Treasury, 6th Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, 10th Governor of Ohio, and a Senator from Ohio. His life dream was to become president of the United States but President Lincoln told him that his service to the US would be better served on the bench, and that's what he did. On the bench, he presided over the Andrew Johnson Impeachment trial. He is buried in Spring Grove Cemetery in Cincinnati, Oh.
