Alfred Huger (1788-1872), a noted Unionist and supporter of Andrew Jackson during the Nullification Controversy, was appointed by Jackson to be Postmaster in 1834, a post he held until 1865, when he resigned, rather than take the "Ironclad Oath." A well known orator, he served in the South Carolina Senate for ten years.

Portrait by James Bogle (1817-1873).
