George Vickers

Biography:George Vickers (November 19, 1801 - October 8, 1879), a Democrat, was a United States Senator from Maryland, serving from 1868-1873. He also served in the Maryland State Senate.

Vickers was born in Chestertown, Maryland, and was employed in the Kent County, Maryland clerk’s office for several years. He studied law, and was admitted to the bar in 1832, commencing practice in Chestertown. He also served as a major general of the State militia in 1861.

In 1864, Vickers served as presidential elector on the Democratic ticket, and was vice president of the Union National Convention of Conservatives in Philadelphia in 1866. He served as a member of the Maryland State Senate from 1866 to 1867, and was elected as a Democrat to the United States Senate to fill the vacancy caused by the action of the Senate in declining to permit Philip Thomas to qualify, serving from March 7, 1868, to March 3, 1873.

After his term in the Senate, he resumed the practice of law in Chestertown, and died there in 1879. He is interred in Chester Cemetery.
