a.k.a. George Washington Cable

Author Code: AGWC

Born: Oct. 12, 1844 - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA

The son of Southern slaveholders, Cable fought on the side of the Confederacy during the Civil War. Regardless of his background, Cable became a staunch supporter of Negro rights. In 1879, he published Old Creole Days, a collection of stories which was widely acclaimed. In 1880, his first novel The Grandissimes, which again had the backdrop of Creole New Orleans, was widely praised. He continued his fight against discrimination in spite of heated abuse by the Southern press. In 1885, he published The Silent South a collection of social essays. Also that year, he moved to Massachusetts when he became convinced that Southern attitudes could not be changed. In 1888, he published The Negro Question, another collection of essays on Southern social issues. His other works include Madame Delphine (1881), Dr. Sevier (1885), Bonaventure (1888), John March (1894), Strong Hearts (1899), Cavalier (1901), Bylow Hill (1902), Kincaid's Battery (1908).
