John Jordan Crittenden was born on September 10, 1786, in Woodford County, Kentucky. Crittenden graduated from William and Mary then studied law under George M. Bibb. During the War of 1812, he served as an aide to General Samuel Hopkins and Governor Isaac Shelby. In 1829, Crittenden won a special election for a State house seat. He served in this capacity until 1832. He also served as Kentucky's Secretary of State in 1834. He proceded on to become U.S. Senator (1834-1841), which he resigned to become President William H. Harrison's Attorney General. He resigned this post when Tyler was elected President. Crittenden was then elected to an unexpired term in the U.S. Senate (1842-1848). During this time, he came out in opposition to Henry Clay. He resigned his seat to run for governor of Kentucky, in hopes of helping Zachery Taylor carry the state in the presidential election. In 1854, he was elected to the U.S. Senate for the forth time, serving until 1861. As the sectional crisis came to a head, he proposed the Crittenden Compromise in 1861. It was passed by the House of Representatives in July of that year. He died on July 26, 1863.
