Roger Sherman Baldwin (1793-1863), a New Haven lawyer and abolitionist, represented the Mende African captives before the U.S. Circuit and District Courts in Connecticut from 1839 to 1840. With John Quincy Adams, he won freedom for the captives before the U.S. Supreme Court in 1841. Baldwin was the grandson of Roger Sherman (1721-1793), a signer of the Declaration of Independence and the author of the Connecticut Compromise at the Constitutional Convention. Roger Sherman Baldwin served terms in the Connecticut Senate, the Connecticut House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate; he was also Governor of Connecticut from 1844 to 1846.
