1. Colonel Albert Miller Lea. Lea is remembered in his native state of Tennessee, in the midwestern states he explored (Minnesota and Iowa), and in East Texas, where he built railroads, fought at the Battle of Galveston, and operated his businesses. Lea knew the political elite of his day in Washington, D. C., commanded their respect, and served faithfully whenever they appointed him to office.
