Born in Indiana, Henry Dodge came to Wisconsin in 1827. Dodge took a prominent part in the Black Hawk War of 1832 as Colonel of the Iowa County militia, and was the first Territorial governor of Wisconsin. He would go on to serve as a delegate to Congress and U.S. Senator. This oil portrait was painted in 1857 by William F. Cogswell (1819-1903) from a photograph.
