Lucius Gartrell in The Guns of the SouthEdit

Lucius Gartrell was elected to the Confederate House of Representatives for a Georgia district, in the election of 1867 on the Confederate Party ticket. As such, he supported President Robert E. Lee's proposal to eliminate slavery.

Gartrell was part of a delegation of Congressmen and Senators that Lee had invited to examine the captured Rivington Men's headquarters in Richmond after the Richmond Massacre. There Lee had laid out captured reference books and other documents from an alternate future for the delegation to examine. This strengthened Gartrell's support for Lee's position.
