About Author

George Cary Eggleston

George Cary Eggleston (November 26, 1839 – April 14, 1911) was an American author and the younger brother of fellow author Edward Eggleston (1837–1902). Joseph Cary Eggleston and Mary Jane Craig's sons. Following the American Civil War, he serialized his experiences as a Confederate soldier in The Atlantic Monthly. These serialized articles were ultimately collected, extended, and published as "A Rebel's Recollections." In his 1906 novel 'Blind Alleys,' a character distinguishes between the 'beer socialist,' who "wants everybody to come down to his low standards of living," and the 'champagne socialist,' that "wants everyone to feel equal on the higher plane that suits him, utterly ignoring the fact of the matter is not enough champagne, green turtle, and truffles to go around."
