In New Orleans, Michael Hahn is inaugurated as the first elected post-Confederate governor of Louisiana

Michael Hahn, a former school official, Democrat, Republican Congressman, and friend of Abraham Lincoln, had been elected as the first post-Confederate governor of Louisiana, winning 54% of the vote. A moderate Republican, he made strong efforts to reform African-American voting rights, as well as black education.  He served only a year, ran for the U.S. Senate in 1865, and resigned as governor when elected.  (By John Osborne)
