Frederick William Green ( born February 18, 1816 in Frederick, Maryland, † June 18, 1879 in Cleveland, Ohio ) was an American politician. Between 1851 and 1855 he represented the state of Ohio in the U.S. House of Representatives.


Frederick Green enjoyed a university education. In 1833 he settled in Tiffin (Ohio ). After studying law and qualifying as a lawyer, he started to work there in his new profession. For six years he was auditor of the management of Seneca County. Politically, he joined the Democratic Party.

In the congressional elections of 1850 Green was in the sixth electoral district of Ohio in the U.S. House of Representatives in Washington DC chosen, where he became the successor of John Bell on March 4, 1851. After a re-election he was able to complete in Congress until March 3, 1855 two legislative sessions. These were shaped by the events leading up to the Civil War.
