Georgia was and is, the largest state east of the Mississippi. She was one of the earliest states to secede from the Union, and one of the last to be conquered. Arguably, the last battle of the Civil War was fought in Columbus, Georgia. The state provided some of the most important leaders of the Confederacy, and in the case of Alexander Stephens and Robert Toombs, two best friends “who formed the Confederacy.” We will visit Liberty Hall of Crawfordsville, the home of Stephens, who became the Vice-President of the Confederacy. He had already established himself as one of the most brilliant and eloquent leaders of the United States Congress leading up to the Civil War. He was the chief author of the Confederate Constitution, the apex of American constitutional theory.
