Civil War Wiki

George Washington Logan (February 22, 1815 – October 18, 1889) was a prominent North Carolina politician who served in the Confederate States Congress during the American Civil War.

Logan was born in Rutherford County, North Carolina. He represented the state in the Second Confederate Congress from 1864 to 1865. After the Civil War he served in the North Carolina State Legislature from 1866 to 1868 as a member of the Republican Party. As a native white member of the Reconstruction Republican Party, Logan was known as a "scalawag", but was strongly opposed to the policies (and possible corruption) enacted by Governor William Woods Holden.[1]

Logan also served as a state court judge from 1868 to 1874.
