Carl Nikolaus Riotte -> Carl Nikolaus Riotte in Texas -> 23.02.1861 Riotte is asked to leave Texas


Riotte (1814-ca 1874), the son of a Prussian noble family, was among the founders of both the Casino Association and the German English School. He was also the founder of the FreeSoil party, and when Texas seceded in 1861, had the dubious distinction of being the first person asked to leave. He served as the minister to Costa Rica under President Lincoln, and minister to Nicaragua under President Grant (BCDR Kl :608; Texas State Archives [TSA], Biography File, Austin, Texas).
