John P. Kennedy

a.k.a. John Pendleton Kennedy, Mark Littleton *

Author Code: AJPK

Born: Oct. 25, 1795 - Baltimore, Maryland, USA

Died: Aug. 18, 1870 - Newport, Rhode Island, USA

Educated at Baltimore College, Kennedy graduated in 1812 and was immediately thrown into the War of 1812. He took part in the battles of Bladenburg and North Point. After the war, he was admitted to the bar though he preferred literary pursuits to those of the law. From 1819 to 1820, he collaborated with Peter Hoffman Cruse in publishing The Red Book, a fortnightly journal. In 1820, he was elected to the Maryland House of Delegates as an active member of the Whig party. In 1832, he published his best known work, Swallow Barn: A Sojourn in the Old Dominion. He had become close friends with Edgar Allan Poe and in 1835 introduced him to Thomas Willis White, editor of the Southern Literary Messenger, and Poe became its assistant editor, publishing much of his work there over the next two years. Kennedy visited England and became friends with William Makepeace Thackeray, later assisting him with background information for The Virginians. In 1838, Kennedy entered the U.S. House of Representatives, but was deposed in November of the same year. He was re-elected in 1840 and again in 1842, but was defeated in 1844. He was appointed Secretary of the Navy by President Filmore in 1852. He retired in 1853, but continued to be active in politics. His other works include Horse-Shoe Robinson (1835), Rob of the Bowl (1838), Annals of Quodlibet (1840), Memoirs of the Life of William Wirt (1849), The Border States (1861), Mr. Ambrose's Letters on the Rebellion (1865) and At Home and Abroad: A Series of Essays (1872 Posthumous).
