Charles Edgeworth Jones of Augusta was a historian.
"In 1835 Augustus Baldwin Longstreet published Georgia's first important literary work, Georgia Scenes, Characters, Incidents, Etc. in the First Half Century of the Republic. 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)."
