Description: Charles Hammond (1779-1840) was born in Maryland and moved to Ohio to practice law in 1803. As a lawyer, he famously represented the state of Ohio in the landmark 1824 case of Osborn v. Bank of the United States, in which the state tried to tax the National Bank of the United States. Although he lost the case, his legal skills were widely recognized. He was elected first to the Ohio Senate and then to the Ohio House of Representatives between 1813 and 1822. He also served as reporter to the Ohio Supreme Court and edited the Cincinnati Gazette.
