  • Alexander Contee Hanson (February 27, 1786 – April 23, 1819) was an American lawyer, publisher, and statesman. He represented the third district of Maryland in the U.S. House, and the state of Maryland in the U.S. Senate. Hanson, the grandson of John Hanson and son of Alexander Contee Hanson, Sr., was born in Annapolis, Maryland, and attended local private schools. He graduated from St. John’s College in Annapolis in 1802. He proceeded to study law, was admitted to the bar, and commenced practice in Annapolis. He served as a member of the Maryland House of Delegates from 1811 to 1815. Hanson established and edited the Federal Republican, an extreme Federalist newspaper, in Baltimore. On June 22, 1812, four days after the beginning of the War of 1812, a mob that was irritated by his articles denouncing the administration destroyed his office. On July 28, he reissued the paper from another building, where he was joined by a group of armed allies. When that building was besieged by a mob, Hanson and his group fired, killing two. On the morning of July 29, Hanson and his group surrendered to the militia and were escorted to jail. That evening, the mob stormed the jail, and Hanson was beaten and left for dead. James Lingan, a military officer who came to Hanson's defence, died as a result of the violence. Hanson moved the paper to Georgetown, D.C., where he published it unmolested. Hanson later moved to Rockville, Maryland. In 1812, Hanson was elected as a Federalist representing the third district to the Thirteenth and Fourteenth Congresses, serving from March 4, 1813 until his resignation in 1816. Hanson was elected a member of the American Antiquarian Society in 1815. He was an unsuccessful candidate in 1816 for election to the Maryland House of Delegates, but was elected as a Federalist to the United States Senate to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Robert Goodloe Harper. He served as senator from December 20, 1816 until his own death on his estate "Belmont", near Elkridge, Maryland. He is interred in the family burial ground. (en)
  • Alexander Contee Hanson (* 27. Februar 1786 in Annapolis, Maryland; † 23. April 1819 bei Elkridge, Maryland) war ein US-amerikanischer Politiker (Föderalistische Partei), der den Bundesstaat Maryland in beiden Kammern des Kongresses vertrat. Alexander Hanson erhielt seine Bildung auf Privatschulen in Annapolis. Er machte 1802 seinen Abschluss am dortigen St. John's College. In der Folge studierte er die Rechte, wurde in die Anwaltskammer aufgenommen und begann in seiner Heimatstadt zu praktizieren. In Baltimore gründete er die Zeitung Federal Republican, mit der er energisch die Sache der Föderalisten vertrat. Am 22. Juni 1812, vier Tage nach Beginn des Britisch-Amerikanischen Krieges, wurde sein Redaktionsbüro von einem wütenden Mob zerstört, nachdem er einen regierungskritischen Kommentar verfasst hatte. Er zog in ein anderes Gebäude um und wurde nur eine Woche später bei einem weiteren Aufruhr schwer verletzt. Daraufhin verlegte er den Sitz der Zeitung nach Georgetown. Sein erstes politisches Mandat übernahm Hanson 1811 als Mitglied des Abgeordnetenhauses von Maryland. Im Jahr darauf wurde er ins US-Repräsentantenhaus gewählt, wo er vom 4. März 1813 bis zu seinem Rücktritt 1816 verblieb. Im selben Jahr verfehlte er die erneute Wahl ins Parlament seines Heimatstaates. Dafür zog er am 20. Dezember 1816 in den US-Senat ein, wo er den Platz des zurückgetretenen Robert Goodloe Harper einnahm. Hanson starb am 23. April 1819 auf seinem Anwesen „Belmont“ und wurde auf dem Familienfriedhof beigesetzt. (de)
