Overview

On the day Chester Arthur left office, four young women offered to marry him.

He was sometimes called "Elegant Arthur" for his commitment to fashionable attire and was said to have looked like a president.

Arthur said, "I may be president of the United States, but my private life is nobody's damned business!"

A champion of civil rights, Arthur was one of the attorneys who successfully represented Elizabeth Jennings Graham.

Her lawsuit, after being denied seating on a streetcar due to her race, contributed to the desegregation of New York City public transportation.

In Lemmon v. New York, the Lemmon Slave Case, Arthur helped secure the 1860 decision that slaves being transferred to a slave state through New York would be emancipated.
