About Bolling Hall, US Congress

US Congressman. He served in the Revolutionary War as a teenager, afterwards settling in Hancock County, Georgia, where he operated a farm. Active in local politics and government, he served in the Georgia House of Representatives from 1800 to 1802 and 1804 to 1806. In 1810 Hall was elected to the US House of Representatives as a Democratic-Republican and served three terms, 1811 to 1817. After leaving Congress, Hall moved to Alabama, establishing an Autauga (now Elmore) County plantation he called "Emslie". In recognition of his status as a Revolutionary War veteran, in 1824 he was Chairman of the local committee that greeted General Lafayette when he came to Alabama as part of his US tour. His son Bolling Hall II served in the Alabama Legislature and was a member of the Alabama Militia's 1st Regiment during the Creek War of 1836. His grandson Bolling Hall III served as Colonel of the Confederate 59th Alabama Infantry Regiment during the Civil War. The home at Emslie still stands, and both the house and the Hall Family Cemetery are included on Alabama's Register of Landmarks and Heritage.
