Charles Edgeworth Jones of Augusta was a historian.

Because of this book he is remembered most often as a literary figure. Longstreet, however, only dabbled in fiction writing, just as he dabbled in many other careers, including roles as a lawyer, judge, state senator, newspaper editor, minister, political propagandist, and college president." - "Augustus Baldwin Longstreet (1790-1870)."
