Augustus Romaldus Wright
Birth: Jun. 16, 1813
Death: Mar. 31, 1891

US Congressman. He was admitted to the bar in 1835 and commenced the practice of law in Crawfordville, Georgia. In 1857, he was elected as a Democrat to the Thirty-fifth Congress, serving until 1859. After the Georgia Secession Convention in 1861, he was offered provisional governorship of Georgia by President Lincoln, but declined to serve as a member of the Confederate Congress. During the Civil War, he organized Wright's Legion, which became the 38th Georgia Infantry. After the war, he resumed the practice of law and was a member of the Georgia Constitutional Convention of 1877. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
