1767 - 1830

Called "lieutenant governor and acting governor," Gabriel Slaughter directed the Commonwealth, 1816-20, after death of Gov. Madison. In spite of succession controversy, the Mercer Co. farmer-soldier, Ky. congressman, and twice lt. gov. earned esteem, if not support. His advanced ideas regarding education, roads, and the state penitentiary met strong resistance.
