  • James Ronald Chalmers (January 11, 1831 – April 9, 1898) was an American lawyer and politician, a state senator in Mississippi and United States Congressman for several terms from the state's 6th congressional district, beginning in 1876. This black-majority district had been established by the legislature to produce white majorities in the other five districts. Chalmers was re-elected in 1880, but the election was contested by his Republican African-American opponent, John R. Lynch. Congress awarded the seat to Lynch because of marked election fraud by the Democrats. In 1882 Chalmers ran as an Independent Democrat on a fusionist ticket, with support by Republicans and Greenbackers. He contested the victory of the regular Democrat, and Congress finally awarded the seat to Chalmers, seating him in 1884. He left politics after losing election in the fall of 1884. During the American Civil War, Chalmers had served with the Confederate States Army. Commissioned as a colonel, he reached the rank of brigadier general and was involved in many actions. (en)
