Admitted to the bar, he commenced law practice in Elizabethton, Tennessee before being elected as a Whig to fill the seat of Brookins Campbell in the 33rd Congress. Taylor ran unsuccessfully for re-election for the 34th Congress, but when Tennessee re-entered the Union in 1865 following the Civil War, he was elected to serve the 39th Congress as a member of the Unionist Party. His sons, Alfred Alexander Taylor and Robert Love Taylor, both served as US Congressmen and as Tennessee Governors, with Robert also serving in the US Senate.
