As a state legislator, congressman, federal judge, and frontier industrial entrepreneur, John G. Jackson exemplified the ruggedness, boldness, energy, and restlessness of the New West in the nineteenth century. His political career in western Virginia paralleled the development of the early Republic. In Congress he became a spokesman for his brother-in-law, President James Madison, and fought a duel with Federalist Congressman Joseph Pearson.
