In Columbus, former Union General Jacob D. Cox is inaugurated as the twenty-eighth governor of Ohio

At two o'clock, former Union Army Major-General Jacob Dolson Cox was inaugurated at the state capitol in Columbus as the twenty-eighth governor of Ohio.  Cox had been elected before his discharge as a Republican.  He served until January 1868, having fallen foul of more radical Republican thanks to his conservative views on African-American suffrage and his support for President Andrew Johnson.  He later served as U.S. Grant's Secretary of the Interior.
