1930. The autobiographical account of Louisiana Governor Warmoth. Warmoth was born in McLeansboro, Illinois. He studied the law and then served with the Union Army in the Civil War, was wounded at Vicksburg, Mississippi, dishonorably discharged in the quarrel between generals Grant and McLernand, was restored to service by President Lincoln with full rank and position he would have held if not dismissed. When the war ended he remained in Louisiana, and was elected Governor in 1868. While Warmoth considered himself a southerner, during his term as governor Warmoth presided over a Carpetbagger Reconstruction administration that many describe as Louisiana's most corrupt. This book is an great example of Southern politics and thought following Reconstruction.
