Robert G. Ingersoll

a.k.a. Robert Green Ingersoll, Bob Ingersoll

Author Code: ARGI

Born: Aug. 11, 1833 - Dresden, New York, USA

Died: Jul. 21, 1899 - Dobbs Ferry, New York, USA

The son of a Congregationalist preacher, Ingersoll was negatively influenced on religion by the persecution of his father during his time in Ohio. Educated in Ohio, Wisconsin and Illinois, Ingersoll began teaching in 1853 in Illinois and was admitted to the Illinois bar in 1854. He continued to read law and served as deputy county clerk. In 1857, he settled in Peoria, Illinois. He took part in the Civil War as commander of the 11th Regiment of Illinois Volunteer Cavalry. Following the war, he was appointed Attorney General for Illinois and became a prominent member of the Republican Party.It was during the presidential campaign in 1876 that Ingersoll's oratory became known and it wasn't long before law practice was superseded by the lecture circuit. Ingersoll was very outspoken on a number of subjects including religion, suffrage and slavery. He was a close friend of Walt Whitman and delivered the eulogy at Whitman's funeral in 1892. Ingersoll's many works include The Gods and Other Lectures (1876), Some Mistakes of Moses (1879), Walt Whitman (1890), Shakespeare (1895), Abraham Lincoln (1895), Voltaire (1895) and Why I Am an Agnostic (1896).
