Michigan

By. H. G. Wells

Method, system and patient industry were the great powers by which Kinsley S. Bingham obtained and held the warm affections of the people of this State, and to-day there are thousands of the older people of Michigan who place him among the highest on the roll of fame. Moses Wisner gave his life to his country, in command of one of the best organized regiments that left Michigan during the rebellion—a regiment having among its members the very best of the farm population of Oakland and adjoining counties. A practice at the bar, continued through many years, with marked habits of industry and careful observation of men, qualified him in a peculiar manner for service as Governor, to which position he was elected in 1859. His messages, for the exhibition of wise, practical thought, are models. When he died and his remains were brought back from Kentucky, to mingle with the soil of this state, that he long had loved so well, grief was not narrowed by county or district limits; it extended to the whole people of the State. They knew and realized that a patriot and statesman was dead.
