Description One of the premiere lawyers of his generation, Severn Teackle Wallis was elected to the Maryland Legislature in 1861, where he proceeded to lead a faction of politicians opposed to the Civil War. The Federal Government, under the direction of Lincoln, imprisoned Mr. Wallis for his transgressions. This piece is a plaster cast of a bronze sculpture. The full size bronze version stands in East Mount Vernon Place, close to the Walters Art Museum.
