Henry Wilson (1812 - 1875) was the 18th Vice President of the United States (1873-1875) and a Senator from Massachusetts (1855-1873). Before and during the American Civil War, he was a leading Republican, and a strong opponent of Slavery. He devoted his energies to the destruction of the "Slave Power" - the faction of Slave owners and their political allies which Anti-Slavery Americans saw as dominating the country.
He was considered a "Radical Republican". After the Civil War, he supported the Radical program for Reconstruction. In 1872, he was elected Vice President of the United States as running mate with President Ulysses S. Grant, and served from 4 March 1873 until his death on 22 November 1875.
