Description

George Dallas was an American politician and diplomat who served as mayor of Philadelphia, U.S. senator from Pennsylvania and the 11th vice president of the United States.  His father had been the secretary of war under James Madison.  As vice president, Dallas advanced the administration’s objectives of tariff reduction and territorial expansion, which was exemplified by the concept of manifest destiny.  In 1837, the newly elected president, Martin Van Buren named him U.S. minister to Russia.  Two years later he was offered the position of U.S. attorney general but turned it down and spent the following years building his Philadelphia law practice.

This U.S. Vice President George Dallas History Mug is part of our U.S. Vice Presidents Series which includes all of the US Vice Presidents.

The biographical History Mugs were created to teach and inspire individuals to learn about our diverse and interesting history.  The biographies were researched and written by history enthusiast, Robert Compton.  He colorized most of the historic photos and images used on the mugs, which were originally black and white or sepia tone.  The images and biographies are imprinted on mugs at his studio in rural Vermont.
