It was strictly a real estate development. It wasn't on freedom of religion or any of these high things. We had natural resources that few communities in the country had. Terre Haute took off in the late 19th century. At one point there were 600 and some grocery stores in this town. In the late 1800s we were known as the largest whiskey distiller in the world. Not in the U.S. -- in the world. Prohibition just killed this town. Most cities our size that had a cornerstone industry go away, those towns don't survive. All of those things that we just take for granted, they had to be fought for. Nothing moved in Terre Haute. It couldn't be a Terre Haute community without the African American community. One day all these trucks were going throught Terre Haute. The day that opened it stopped. You meet somebody on an airplane and say 'Terre Haute', the first thing I always hear is 'That's where Larry Bird played.' Always. As a community we reminisce a little bit too much. We think of how it used to be and that's how it should always be. ... instead of taking a risk, taking a chance. Wouldn't it be great to create our own history now. The people that have come before us in our community have done really great things. Historically, people before me and my generation have really set us up for some really great successes. We're reaching a critical mass. We're reaching a time or a point where enough people are involved... enough organizations are wanting to do something, that we're going to hit this tipping point where... all of a sudden, people go, "ooh, that's the place I want to go live." And I think that's what it's going to take to actually make Terre Haute what it could be. It was strictly a real estate development.

Early life

He was born in County Cork, Ireland. As a child his family moved to the United States and settled in Baltimore, Maryland. In 1813 he moved to Vincennes, Indiana. He was involved in both business and in publishing a local paper.

Judicial career

From 1816 until 1820 he was an Associate Justice of the Circuit Court of Knox County, Indiana. He resigned from this post in 1820. In both 1816 and 1821, he ran unsuccessfully for the Indiana State Senate.

In 1825 he was appointed a lieutenant colonel of the State Militia. He also began serving in the Indiana Senate that year. He continued to serve in the State Senate until 1833 when he was elected to the United States Congress.

Six candidates vied for the seat he won, with only 20.94% of the vote. He only led his closest opponent by two votes. At this point he is most often identified as an anti-Jacksonian.

He was also elected to the congress that convened in 1837, this time as a Whig, and with a greater percentage of the votes cast.
