Alexander H  Stephens of Georgia

WINNER OF THE JEFFERSON DAVIS AWARD Rising from humble origins in the middle Georgia cotton belt, Alexander H. Stephens (1812–1883) became one of the South’s leading politicians and lawyers. Thomas E. Schott has written the first scholarly biography that analyzes the interplay between the public and private Stephens and between state and national politics during his contradictory career. Stephens was a celebrated Whig, turned Democrat, who served as congressman from 1843 to 1859 and an antisecessionist who became vice-president of the Confederacy. Ignored by the Davis administration once in office, he eventually opposed most of its wartime policies. Schott argues that Stephens’ devotion to the southern cause was as genuine as his devotion to civil liberties and states’ rights. After the war, he became an elder statesman for Georgia, serving nine more years as a congress-man and the last five months of his life as governor.

There 1s no evidence, by any witness sworn, that any man, even in Lawrence, was prevented from voting by force, violence, or intimidation. Some witnesses swear that they did not vote because of the crowd; but not one sivears that he could not have voted if he had wanted to, in consequence of any violence, force, or threat, and there was no crowd about the polls 1n the afterpart of the day. Therefore, in this first district, the testimony in connection with the census does not indicate that, if the election had been left to' the actual residents alone, the F1ee Soil ticket would have been elected.
