Colby, a native of New Hampshire, operated a grist mill, was a founder of the scythe industry in New Hampshire, and was elected its governor in 1846. He delights in the election results, which routed adherents of "this monstrous and satanic Rebellion." Those adherents included New Hampshire's Copperhead Democrats, like former President Franklin Pierce. "Our returns are nearly all in, which show the re-election of Governor Berry by a majority of about 2000 over all. Our Council will be wholly, and the Senate and House strongly Republican. This is a decisive victory, as it shows to the country that New Hampshire stands firm in her efforts to put down this Rebellion, and that she is unwilling to make any compromises with Traitors whether at the South or North."
