Description - Georgia Scenes, Characters, Incidents &C., in the First Half Century of the Republic (Illustrated Edition) (Dodo Press) by A Native Georgian

Augustus Baldwin Longstreet (1790-1870) was an American lawyer, minster, educator, and humorist, born in Augusta, Ga. He graduated at Yale (1813) and practiced law in Georgia, becoming a district judge in 1822 and holding the position for several years. He became a Methodist minister and in a year was made president of Emory College (1839). After nine years he accepted the presidency of Centenary College, Louisiana, then of the University of Mississippi, where he stayed for six years, after which he resigned, and became a planter, but was tempted by the presidency of South Carolina College. His fame is based, however, on a single book, of which he was the author: Georgia Scenes (1835), originally published in newspapers, then gathered into a volume at the South, and finally issued in 1840 in New York. It featured realistic sketches of Southern humor.
