Brig. Gen. William Tatum Wofford's life spanned the greater part of the 19th century. He managed to be a part of most of the momentous issues that shaped Georgia history in that era. From the Mexican War in 1847-48 to the famous Georgia Constitutional Convention of 1877, Wofford left an indelible impression among his contemporaries. In the state legislature and in the Confederate military, he knew well the likes of Robert Toombs, A R Lawton, the Cobb brothers, Joseph E Brown, the Stephens brothers, James Longstreet, Robert E Lee, and Jefferson Davis. Even when they disagreed with him on political or military matters, these men were impressed with his probity, generosity, and high-mindedness. This book is the only existing biography of this prominent Georgia soldier and statesman.
