About Alexander Boarman

Alexander 'Aleck' Boarman (December 10, 1839 – August 30, 1916) was a United States federal judge appointed to the United States District Court for the Western District of Louisiana and United States Representative. He fought in the American Civil War for the Confederate States of America from 1861–1865; during the war he was promoted to the rank of captain. After the war, Boarman entered politics and was elected in 1866 as the mayor of Shreveport, Louisiana. As a member of the short-lived Liberal Republican Party, he served in Congress for one year. In 1881, Boarman was named to the U.S. district court by Republican U.S. President James A. Garfield; he held that position for the remaining thirty-five years of his life.
