Salmon P. Chase Greenback

Salmon P. Chase served as Secretary of the Treasury under President Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War and would later be appointed Chief Justice in 1864. His portrait appears on the first one dollar bill in 1862, popularly known as a “greenback” due to its color. “I had some handsome pictures put on them…” Chase later recalled, “and as I like to be among the people...and as the engravers thought me rather good looking, I told them they might put me on the end of the one-dollar bills.”
