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.
