     Henry Dodge was young when his parents were divorced. Both remarried, with his mother remaining in Kentucky, and his father going to Ste. Genevieve, Missouri. When in his teens, Henry went to live with his father in Missouri, where his public life began in 1805 when he was deputy sheriff of Ste. Genevieve, MO, and later served as sheriff. In 1820, he was elected by the people a member of the convention that framed the constitution of Missouri. In his capacity as Major-General of the Missouri troops he received the Marquis de Lafayette upon his visit to St. Louis April 29, 1825.
Henry removed to Wisconsin in 1827, and was there a leader in the Winnebago and Black Hawk wars. He took with him the slaves he had inherited from his father, and there gave them their freedom. He engaged extensively in lead mining near Dodgeville, Wisconsin.
Col. Dodge commanded as Colonel of the U. S. Dragoons in 1834, the first U. S. military expedition to the Indian country west of Arkansas and Missouri. A portion of the country traversed is now Oklahoma. Lieut. Jefferson Davis was one of his officers. George Catlin, the celebrated portrait painter, was also part of the expedition. The Secretary of War, in his report of 1834, says that Col. Dodge led the expedition in the most satisfactory manner, and that his efforts to introduce amicable relations with the distant tribes of Indians were successful without a single act of hostility.
Col Dodge commanded the first U.S. military expedition to the Rocky Mountains via the Platte, returning via Arkansas in 1835. This was the eleventh mounted expedition which Col. Dodge had commanded. While Colonel of the U.S. Dragoons, in command of Fort Leavenworth, his career as a soldier was closed by his appointment, April 30, 1836, as Governor of Wisconsin, Iowa, Minnesota and that portion of the Dakotas east of the Missouri River. He was also made Superintendent of Indian Affairs for the Northwest, in addition to his duties as Governor.
Governor Dodge was removed from office by President Tyler in 1841, and on July 19 of that year he was nominated for Congress and duly elected. He took his seat December 7, 1841, and for four years sat by the side of his son Augustus, who the previous year had been elected from Iowa. On May 13, 1845, Henry Dodge was restored to the office of Governor by President Polk. In 1848 Wisconsin was admitted to the Union, and on June 8, 1848, Henry Dodge was elected to the United States Senate. His son Augustus joined him next December as Senator from Iowa. At the end of his second term in the Senate, Henry Dodge was tendered the office of Governor of Washington Territory, but declined on account of his advanced age, being in his seventy-fifth year.
