Benjamin Braswell (d. 1817) was a wealthy planter from Madison, Georgia long before the American Civil War. Upon his death, he left instructions that thirteen of his slaves be sold and the proceeds of the sale used to establish a school for local poor white children. The citizens of Madison erected a monument to honor his "philanthropy".

Benjamin Braswell in Southern VictoryEdit

Both Cassius and Gracchus found bitter irony in the monument dedicated to Benjamin Braswell in Madison when they viewed it in 1944. Gracchus urinated on the monument to show his contempt for Confederate whites.[1]
