Description:
George Graham (1772 – August 9, 1830) served as acting U.S. Secretary of War under two U.S. Presidential administrations from 1815 to 1818. Outside of his Cabinet service, he is best known for a mission to Galveston Island, Texas to persuade the small Bonapartist colony of Champ d'Asile to accept American jurisdiction. There he met with privateer Jean Laffite. This voyage is considered the first Anglo-American account of a sea voyage to Texas.

He is buried in Arlington National Cemetery.
