  5. Governor (and Senator) Richard Coke. Lawyer, statesman, and (probably gentleman) farmer from Waco, Texas. Now you can continue playing with your tractor!

  6. Nate and Rob,
    YES! It is Richard Coke, Governor of Texas.

    Prior to the Civil War, he was a delegate that voted FOR secession at the secession convention of Texas. After the war, he was elected Judge in Texas, but was removed by General Sheridan, who felt his efforts were not helpful to reconstruction. That riled people up, who then elected him governor.

    A great Texan!

  7. I never heard of Richard Coke. This was a great entry considering the surge with "Tea Party" rebels.

  8. "Tea Party" stands for Taxed Enough Already. A rebellious notion to a wasteful government.
