2579 John Tyler Morgan and the Search for Southern Autonomy, by Joseph A. Fry (read 12 Feb 1994) Morgan was an Alabama Senator from March 4, 1877 till he died June 11, 1907. While this book is uninspired in its compilation and not designed to be read by non-scholars I liked it very much. Especially interesting was the chapter called "Dinging on the Nicaragua Canal, 1898-1904." Morgan was a hard-working man intent on a canal, which he insisted had to be in Nicaragua. The fascinating story told so well by David McCullough in The Path Between the Seas is touched on in this book, and was just as interesting as McCullough told it. Morgan was in the vanguard of southern politics for over 50 years. ( )
