Chase was nominated by Abraham Lincoln to serve as a Supreme Court Justice, and he served as the Chief Justice for nine years.

    This is a daguerrotype of a young Frederick Roeding, the father of George C. Roeding Sr. Daguerrotypes are one of the earliest forms of photography. A daguerrotype used light-sensitive chemicals coated on a silver-plated copper sheet to generate a photograph. These photos would have to be placed behind glass, as any contamination may cause a reaction that destroys the image. They were relatively expensive, so only wealthy individuals could afford to have a daguerrotype of themselves.
