Summary

Joseph Glover Baldwin (1815-1864) was an American author. To help contribute financially to the family, he began working at an early age, leaving school at fourteen and becoming a deputy law clerk. He worked as an editor at the Advocate, a local paper in Lexington, Virginia, while also writing pieces for the Richmond Whig. Baldwin's 1843 successful run as a Whig candidate for the Alabama House of Representatives inaugurated his political career. Most critics speculate that it was around this time that he began drafting his well-known sketches of the southwestern frontier that would first appear in the Southern Literary Messenger before being collected, expanded, and published under the title The Flush Times of Alabama and Mississippi in 1853. His other works include Party Leaders: Sketches (1855).
