During the late war he was a warm friend of the Union, and when Georgia was reconstructed he was elected a state senator. A delegation having been appointed to visit Washington to complete the legal reconstruction of the state, he was made a member of it. The anger of his political opponents was awakened against him for the decided stand he had taken, and he was murdered in Warren County, Ga., May 10, 1869. (J. C. S.)
