Edward Ward Carmack
Birth: Nov. 5, 1868
Death: Nov. 9, 1908

US Congressman. Carmack was a newspaper editor before being elected as a U.S. Representative from Tennessee in 1897. He served until he was elected as a U.S. Senator from Tennessee (1901-1907). In 1908, he lost an election for Tennessee governor to Malcolm Patterson. Carmack, now editor of the Nashville paper, waged a vicious war of words against Patterson. The result was a gun battle which left Carmack dead, and two of Patterson's advisors charged with murder. (bio by: Evening Blues)

A war of words should not have led to a death. I'm sorry you were taken from us so tragically, Edward Ward. Rest in Peace. See you in Heaven.
