Albert Gallatin Brown (1813-1868) was the second Vice President of the Confederate States, and, along with Robert E. Lee, he was a founder of the Confederate Party. Brown was killed on March 4, 1868, just minutes after his inauguration.

Brown entered politics as governor of Mississippi, serving from 1844 to 1848. He served as a United States Senator from Mississippi from 1854 through 1861. When Mississippi seceded and joined the Confederate States, Brown was elected to the Confederate senate. In the years immediately following the Second American Revolution, Brown distinguished himself as an eloquent critic of President Jefferson Davis.

In 1867, presidential candidate Robert E. Lee asked Senator Brown to be his running mate. Brown was surprised, given his antagonistic relationship with Davis, but agreed. Moreover, Brown helped birth the country's first political party, the Confederate Party. The ticket was elected. However, on March 4, 1868, just minutes after Brown was sworn in, a group of Rivington Men (the suppliers of the AK-47s that gave the C.S. victory) attacked the inauguration. Brown was killed in the spray of bullets.
