This 1908 biography of the vice president of the Confederacy was written by a native Georgian. Though he was often quite ill, Stephens was described as "the Strongest Man in the South." The book is part of the American Crisis series, devoted to important historical figures on both sides of the Civil War. The series’ objective was to paint the Civil War as a great event in American history, and not simply the fault of a rebellious South.
