>> I remember I think it was the finest speak the Linden Johnson ever made when he came to the Congress and asked the Congress to guarantee that every American had the right to vote and we passed a Civil Rights bill a voting rights act that ended decades and decades of discrimination against African American's and Latinos and others and it didn't end overnight but it was a statement, a commitment that the United States was gonna do everything possible to see that every American had the right to participate in our government and I remember going back from that vote thinking we've really done something important today.


Born in Halifax County, Virginia, where his parents were living by 1783, Davenport completed preparatory studies and received a license to operate as a merchant in Meadville, Virginia. He was a captain in the county militia during the War of 1812.

Davenport was elected as a Jacksonian to the Nineteenth through the Twenty-second Congresses and elected as an Anti-Jacksonian to the Twenty-third Congress (March 4, 1825 – March 3, 1835).

He died near Meadville, on November 17, 1838.
