==Early life and education==
Blair was born in Franklin County, Kentucky.〔 His father, Francis P. Blair, Sr.,〔 was, as editor of the ''Washington Globe'', a prominent figure in the Democratic Party during the Jacksonian era, and as a boy Montgomery "often listened to the talk of his father and Andrew Jackson."〔Allan Nevins, ''The War for the Union'', vol. 1: ''The Improvised War, 1861-1862'' (New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1959), p. 43.〕 Blair graduated from the United States Military Academy in 1835, but after a year's service in the Seminole War, he left the Army, studied law, and began practice at St Louis, Missouri, in 1839.〔 After serving as United States district attorney (1839–43) and as judge of the court of common pleas (1834–1849), he moved to Maryland in 1852 and devoted himself to law practice principally in the United States Supreme Court.〔 He was United States Solicitor in the Court of Claims (1855–58) and was associated with George T. Curtis as counsel for the plaintiff in the ''Dred Scott v. Sandford'' case of 1857.〔
