Timeline
Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of William Allen
    OTHER
  • 1879
    At the close of his administration, he retired to private life at Fruit Hill, where he died in 1879.
    More Details Hide Details Allen is buried at Grandview Cemetery, Chillicothe. Allen County, Kansas is named for William Allen. In 1887, Ohio donated a statue of Allen to the National Statuary Hall Collection, which was exhibited in the National Statuary Hall of the U.S. Capitol. The statue was sculpted by Charles H. Niehaus. In 2010, the Ohio Historical Society held a statewide poll on the suitability of Allen as a distinguished representative of the state. The poll found that many Ohioans objected to Allen. On August 26, the Ohio National Statuary Committee voted to replace Allen's statue with a statue of Ohio-born inventor Thomas A. Edison. The Ohio General Assembly agreed to replace the statue in part because "Allen’s pro-slavery position and outspoken criticism of President Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War make him a poor representative for Ohio in the U.S. Capitol." However, lack of funding for the Edison statue delayed replacement of the Allen statue. The Edison statue was completed in spring 2015, and was replaced September 20th, 2016. The statue of Allen was relocated to the Ross County Heritage Center in Chillicothe.
  • 1875
    He unsuccessfully sought a second two-year term in an 1875 election.
    More Details Hide Details Allen was noted for his loud voice. A friend asked Senator Benjamin Tappan if a fellow Ohioan was still in Washington. Tappan replied "No, he left yesterday and is probably by this time in Cumberland, Maryland, but if you will go to Bill Allen and tell him to raise that window and call him he will come back."
  • 1874
    Allen retired to his farm, "Fruit Hill", which had belonged to his father-in-law, and fellow Ohio Governor, Duncan McArthur, near Chillicothe, Ohio. Allen did not return to public service for nearly a quarter century, until he served as Governor of Ohio from 1874 to 1876.

  • 1837
    He served as United States Senator from Ohio from 1837 to 1849, losing a bid for a third term in 1848.
    More Details Hide Details While in the Senate, Allen was one of a group of Western Democrat expansionists who asserted that the U.S. had a valid claim to the entire Oregon Country, which was an issue during the 1844 U.S. presidential election. He suggested that the United States should be prepared to go to war with the United Kingdom in order to annex the entire Oregon Country up to Russian-owned Alaska at latitude 54°40′N. This position ultimately produced the slogan "Fifty-Four Forty or Fight!," coined in 1846 by opponents of such a policy (not, as popularly believed, a slogan in the 1844 Presidential campaign).
  • 1833
    Allen served as United States Representative from Ohio from 1833 to 1835, losing his bid for re-election.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1819
    Allen was born in Edenton, North Carolina and moved to Chillicothe, Ohio in 1819, after his parents' death.

He was admitted to the bar in Ohio at age 21. He began his career as a politician in the Democratic Party at a young age. Allen supported "popular sovereignty" and the presidential candidacy of Lewis Cass, identifying himself as a "Peace Democrat" and opposing the U.S. Civil War.
