Governor Thomas Hill Watts1

M, b. 3 January 1819, d. 16 September 1892

  • Obituary*: 17 September 18922
    Thomas H. Watts obituary
    Thomas H. Watts obituary
  • Biography*: Thomas Hill Watts was born in the Alabama Territory on January 3, 1819, the oldest of twelve children born to John Hughes Watts and Prudence Hill who had moved from Georgia to find the better lands of the frontier. Prepared for college at the Airy Mount Academy in Dallas County, Watts graduated with honors from the University of Virginia in 1840. He passed the bar examination the next year, and began practicing law in Greenville. In 1848 he moved his lucrative law practice to Montgomery. He also became a successful planter, owning 179 slaves in 1860.
    Politically, Watts adopted a pro-Union stance during the 1850s, but subsequent developments made the depth of his beliefs questionable, for on the eve of the Civil War he played an important role in the secession of Alabama, and was one of the signers of the secession ordinance. Defeated by John Gill Shorter in an 1861 bid for governor, Watts organized the Seventeenth Alabama Regiment, but resigned later to become attorney general in President Jefferson Davis' cabinet.
    In 1863 Watts was elected governor of Alabama. Assuming office on December 1, he began an eighteen-month governorship at a time when impressment, the tax-in-kind, and other severe wartime economic measures had become most odious. Worthless Confederate money, lack of credit possibilities, irregular supplies of goods, impressment efforts that often amounted to pillage and plunder, and harsh (and unevenly applied) taxes-in-kind levied on agriculture convinced many people that they preferred the "Old Union" to the "new despotism." The need to raise troops for the defense of the state became more urgent. Appeals to the male population to form volunteer companies and appeals to the state legislature to reorganize the state's awkward two-class militia were met with unsurmountable resistance. Some critics of Watts thought he should concentrate on forcing deserters back into military service. The legislature's failure to act meant that the state, and the Confederacy, would not have an effective militia in the final critical months of the war. Furthermore, the Confederate Conscription Act of February 17, 1864, inaugurated a policy of conscription that inevitably led to conflict between the state and the Confederacy.
    By September 1864 another turbulent issue confronted Governor Watts: the opening negotiations for peace. A faction in the Alabama House of Representatives introduced resolutions in favor of the negotiations. Governor Watts was also faced with rising desertion rates, states' rights issues including the controversy over the conscription of the cadets at the University of Alabama, the issue of which state civil officials were exempt from conscription, the defense of Mobile, blockade-running, and cotton trading with Europe. During the winter of 1864-65, Governor Watts had to deal with the increasing number of sacrifices demanded of his state, the breakdown of authority, the drain on war power, and an evaporating hope of victory, all of which contributed to the state's war weariness. Governor Watts was well aware of his ineffectiveness and unpopularity by this time and made no effort toward reelection, although he continued to talk optimistically about the military situation. Arrested in Union Springs on May 1, 1865, Governor Watts was released a few weeks later and returned to Montgomery. He died twenty-seven years later on September 16, 1892.1

Charles Manley Brown Jr.

  • Name-Comm: Charlie Brown
  • (Child) Birth*: 20 November 1902
  • (Deceased) Death*: 19 May 1995; Atlanta, Fulton Co., Georgia
  • Biography*: Charlie Brown, a former chairman of the Fulton County Commission and a 40-year fixture on the Atlanta political scene, died Friday at the A. G. Rhodes Homes. He was 92.
    "Charlie Brown had a great host of friends," said former Mayor Ivan Allen, Jr. "He was a Tech man, an Atlanta man. I always looked on him as a man with a tremendous civic, business and political interest in the city."
    Mr. Brown was a Fulton commissioner from 1941 to 1948, and chairman from 1945 to 1947; a commisioner again from 1966 to 1979, and chairman again in 1966, 1968, 1971, 1974 and 1976-1978. He served in the state Senate from Fulton Couty from 1957 to 1964.
    He called himself the "daddy of the Fulton County Registration Department." As a commissioner, he sponsored the use of automatic voting machines. As a state senator, he wrote a law providing a full-time registrar.
    He was a tall, skinny man with wavy hair that, in his later years, turned into a flowing mane of white. Horned-rimmed glasses helped him fix a political rival with a wilting stare across a meeting-room table.
    He retired in 1979.
    "Whether I've made a success of my life, I must leave for others to decide. I've done what I could."
    He also helped sponsor Fulton's county-manager form of government and served on the Fulton-DeKalb Hospital Authority. He had a hand in building the Atlanta expressways, Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium, MARTA, water and sewer systems, health centers, a mental health program and an alcohol treatment center.
    Charlie Brown graduated from Tech High and Georgia Tech. He went to work for the family firm and became its president in 1937.
