Us Whig Peace Congressman North Carolina Militia Colonel Autograph Signature Vf:
(1806 - 1868)
U.S. WHIG CONGRESSMAN FROM NORTH CAROLINA 1847-1853
COLONEL IN THE BERTIE COUNTY REGIMENT OF THE NORTH CAROLINA MILITIA!
When Outlaw ran for the North Carolina Senate in 1864, he assured voters that he would support the re-election of Governor Zebulon Baird Vance and seek peace with the North based on Southern Independence. If elected, he would also oppose a convention, "believing it to be a trick, by which North Carolina was to be withdrawn from the Confederacy."
When in the U.S. Congress, Outlaw was a quiet listener but very persuasive when he did speak. Using simple language, Outlaw impressed his colleagues with his forceful voice. During the period 1847–53, he strongly opposed the bill establishing territorial governments in Oregon, New Mexico, and California on the grounds that the bill was not a compromise between the North and the South. Rather, he believed, the measure was unfair to the South. Similarly, Outlaw was against the acquisition of any Mexican territory by conquest for fear the action would create sectional difficulties and jeopardize the Union. As a congressman, he strived to maintain peace between the North and the South.
