Mayor of Baltimore 1808-1814 and 1822

· Mayor in 1812 when the city prepared for war
with the British. Known as "Baltimore's War", Johnson headed the Committee of Vigilance and Safety and rallied Baltimore's citizens for battle.

· The mayor was nearly killed while trying to quell a mob that tried to break into the City Jail and lynch pro-British citizens.

· Mayor Johnson owned the brewery where Mary Young Pickersgill completed the sewing of the Star Spangled Banner.

· In 1819, Mayor Johnson had to deal with a yellow fever epidemic which devastated many crowded waterfront areas of Baltimore City.

Upon leaving office, his portrait was painted by
the renowned American painter, Rembrandt Peale,
beginning the custom that carries on today.
