"Cass, the second territorial governor of Michigan, oversaw the forced removal of tens of thousands of Native Americans from their lands as secretary of war under President Andrew Jackson. As a U.S. senator, he promoted the doctrine of popular sovereignty, suggesting white settlers in new territories should vote on whether to expand slavery. The marble statue of his likeness has a prominent place in National Statuary Hall in the Capitol. The state of Michigan gave the statue to the collection in 1889."
