Biographical or historical data
Albert Gallatin was born on January 29, 1761 in Switzerland. He emigrated to the United States in 1780, settling in Pennsylvania and serving in the Revolutionary Army. He was elected to the House of Representatives in 1796 and fought constantly with the Secretary of the Treasury, Alexander Hamilton. He was responsible for the law of 1801 requiring that the Secretary of the Treasury submit an annual report, and he submitted the first one later that year after becoming Secretary of the Treasury. He also helped create the House Ways and Means Committee which reviews the Treasury annual report. He served as Secretary of the Treasury until 1814. In 1814, he went to Russia to represent the United States in the peach conference with England and France, the result being the Treaty of Ghent. He was appointed United States Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary to France, 1815-1823, and he was appointed Minister Plenipotentiary to Great Britain, 1826-1827. He died on August 12, 1849 and is interred in New York City. "Gallatin, Albert". Retrieved 2013/10/15. http://www.treasury.gov/about/history/Pages/agallatin.aspx"Gallatin, Albert".
