Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0788418068, Paperback)

Littleton Quinton Washington was a distant cousin of our first president, and had a passion for politics and public life. Although he was an important political figure in the Civil War era, he is virtually unknown today, in part because he chose the wrong side in that war.

He began life as a young adventurer in gold rush era San Francisco, became an outspoken advocate of Southern interests in Antebellum Washington, D.C., served in the State Department of the Confederacy during the Civil War, was a booster of Southern Reconstruction, and an outspoken journalist who was well acquainted with many of the prominent men of his time. This biography is based primarily on his surviving correspondence and public records.
