Statue[edit]

I felt it appropriate that the image of his statue be included in this article. I rearragned the images a little to accommodate the statue so the page wouldn't be too long. I'm not involved with WikiProject Michigan, so I hope this isn't messing with the project any; just trying to help. --Douglas Whitaker 01:37, 26 July 2006 (UTC)

Vandalism[edit]

I cleared out some vandalism on both the article and the talk page, hopefully it doesn't return. Thehebrewhammer 23:11, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

The caption above the picture is wrong (vandalism?). I don't know how to edit it. William hanna (talk) 04:13, 16 April 2013 (UTC)

Quip[edit]

A rival once said of Lewis Cass, "His reputation lies beyond the sea"- get it? Does anyone know the source of this? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jlk2020 (talkcontribs) 03:06, 15 September 2007 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for File:Seal-of-Michigan.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

File:Seal-of-Michigan.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images lacking such an explanation can be deleted one week after being tagged, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.

President Pro Tem[edit]

The article does not list why he was the PPT for only one day. Granted, Presidential Succession makes it a biggger deal now than it was back then, but it's still unusual. MMetro (talk) 01:48, 13 August 2009 (UTC)

I don't really know, but I just want to say that even then, the PPT was next in succession line; next after President, actually, since there was no VP at the time (King died in April 1853). --82.179.218.10 (talk) 13:37, 25 May 2010 (UTC)
When the Senate returned for the session beginning 4 December 1854, Senator David Rice Atchison (who had been elected PPT before the end of the previous session) was not present. On motion of Senator Hunter of Virginia, Cass was elected PPT by unanimous consent. Upon taking the chair, Cass said the following: "In assisting, gentlemen of the Senate, at your organization, I hold this seat to-day, but I can hold it no longer, as I do not feel competent to preside over the deliberations of the Senate." Whether he genuinely did not feel competent or simply did not wish to be encumbered by presiding over the Senate every day because (as pointed out) there was no Vice President is an open question. -Rrius (talk) 05:50, 16 April 2013 (UTC)

The Oregon Question[edit]

Would it be worth noting that Cass was a vocal opponent of the Oregon Treaty on several grounds? His speech in the Senate hearing on the treaty seems to be the sole one held by the Library of Congress. Uberstadt (talk) 04:52, 8 September 2014 (UTC)
