Kossuth protested in a public manner and officials saw that as a blatant disregard for the neutral position of the United States. A new paper was started to which was given the name of Kossuth Hirlapja so that from the first it was Kossuth rather than the Palatine or prime minister Batthyány whose name was in the minds of the people associated with the new government. In November 1848 Emperor Ferdinand abdicated in favour of Franz Joseph.
Kossuth's bronze bust can be found in the United States Capitol with the inscription: "Father of Hungarian Democracy Hungarian Statesman Freedom Fighter 1848–1849". Lajos Kossuth de Udvard et Kossuthfalva (Hungarian: [ˈlɒjoʃ ˈkoʃuːt] archaically English: Louis Kossuth; Ľudovít Košút in Slovak; 19 September 1802 – 20 March 1894) was a Hungarian lawyer journalist politician and Regent-President of the Kingdom of Hungary during the revolution of 1848–49.
