The Wild Man from Sugar Creek: The Political Career of Eugene Talmadge Reviews

    I've read this book three times. It's a great read about a man who cast a long shadow in Georgia politics long after his death. It's hard to find but worth the effort.

    Putting Eugene Talmadge’s Wild Legacy within a Contemporary ContextWilliam Anderson’s The Wild Man from Sugar Creek: the Political Career of Eugene Talmadge is one the most engrossing and compelling portraits of a complex American political figure in American literature. It was, in addition, an essential source of the biographical information and historical insights needed to complete the essay titled “The Bridge and the Monument: A Tale of Two Legacies,” published in The American Poet Who Went Home Again.Mr. Talmadge was a controversial figure when he was elected governor of the state Georgia (USA) four times (he died shortly after the fourth election). He has remained one in the twenty-first century while residents of the city of Savannah repeatedly debate the wisdom of retaining or removing his name--so indelibly associated with white supremacy--on or from the magnificent bridge spanning the Savannah River from the city’s downtown area to Hutchinson Island. The Eugene Talmadge we meet in the pages of The Wild Man from Sugar Creek is a fierce champion of the supposed underdog white political demographic he adopts as his constituency/tribe. To them he famously declared, “You all got only three friends in this world: The Lord God Almighty, the Sears Roebuck catalog and Eugene Talmadge. And you can only vote for one of them.” They heard him and many apparently believed him.We also meet in this biography Talmadge the vehement die-hard racist who advised white citizens of Georgia to follow his lead by “flash[ing] to the world the news [on September 10, 1942] that Georgia recognizes white supremacy and is a white man’s state.” That declaration and many others like it make it difficult to win any arguments in favor of keeping Talmadge’s name on the bridge currently bearing it.The value of Anderson’s unflinching report, however, goes beyond regional or even national policies governing the names of public facilities and spaces. It speaks boldly to the international dilemma of how best to correct grievous historical atrocities of the past. Talmadge’s legacy and the lessons which may be gleaned from it cannot be ignored as members of diverse cultural groups attempt to establish peaceful coexistence in a twenty-first-century world flooded with political and social discontent, be they due to wars, unyielding immigration issues, the wealth divide, gender concerns, or cyber disruptions. Truthfully, on many levels Talmadge’s political strategy was not very different from that of the current POTUS Donald Trump's when it comes to over-emphasizing the plight of one demographic to the exclusion of America’s cross-cultural population as a whole. That observation circles back to the question of what lessons should contemporary citizens take from the xenophobia-inspired rise of The Wild Man from Sugar Creek and which of his pronounced values and practices should be vigorously denounced. The answers should be clear enough but a thorough reading of Anderson’s expert volume can help make them more so.Aberjhaniauthor of The American Poet Who Went Home Againeditor of The Civil War Savannah Books Series Savannah: Brokers, Bankers, and Bay Lane: Inside the Slave Trade

    Back in the early 1990s, I found myself simultaneously teaching a course on contemporary Georgia at the University of Georgia and researching a biography of Jimmy Carter (published in 1996). The only problems were that I was not a native Georgian or even a native Southerner and knew nothing about the state or the region. I therefore had to learn a lot, and embarked on a campaign of reading to educate myself.I can't say that Wild Man from Sugar Creek was the most important book I read then. Standard histories were understandably more helpful, and there are many other fascinating figures in Georgia's history I enjoyed learning about. (In addition to such biggies as Martin Luther King, Jr. and Jimmy Carter, I found myself attracted to Tom Watson, Henry Grady, and even Oglethorpe, among others.) However, this biography of Eugene Talmadge was flat-out the most enjoyable book I read. I loved it and count it as my favorite book about the South to this day. Actually, it's among my all-time favorite books on any subject. It's just so well written, Talmadge such a colorful character, and the epoch so intriguing that the book is a positive gem.In fact, while I doubt that she has read it, my daughter indirectly enjoyed the book. We used to drive around some of the small towns in rural Georgia, and when we entered one of Talmadge's old haunts, I'd tell her stories about him taken from the book. It got to where when we entered a town she'd ask, "Dad, is there a story about 'Old Gene' here?" She loved the Talmadge stories. She's now an adult in what Southerners sometimes call "high cotton" in New York City and not especially proud of her Southern roots, but I'm sure she's a better person for having glimpsed the bygone world of the rural South. Most Yankees have no sense at all of what this world was like, or how recently it was with us.This is just one of my favorite books ever, and I can't recommend it highly enough.

    Mercy. I had never delved into Georgia's political past....what a character. History does repeat itself!

    This book was published in 1975. Rather surprisingly, the back flap states that it is the first full biography of Eugene Talmadge. The author appears to have a more sympathetic attitude towards Eugene Talmadge that I would have thought. I appreciated learning some of the facts about Eugene Talmadge, and the book covered some of the more egregious moments in his history, such as his political campaigns and the suspension of accreditation of Georgia schools that occurred during his tenure. However I wish that it had gone into more detail than it did. That is an interesting story and I would have appreciated more depth. Also, the story stopped with Eugene's death, so it did not cover the 3-governor squabble that took place immediately thereafter. In other words, it stopped just as things were getting interesting. I enjoyed the book but would like more information on the topic.

    This was a great work. I was surprised at how well written and how much information the author dug up about the man. It's tough digging up stuff from the 1930's and this author covered all the major events from Talmadge's career as well as adding a lot of color from the times. Very engaging and provocative - it makes me realize that the more politics changes, the more it stays the same.
