About Author

William Gilmore Simms

William Gilmore Simms was a poet, novelist, politician, and historian from the American South. His writings rose to prominence during the nineteenth century, with Edgar Allan Poe proclaiming him the best author America had ever produced. He is still regarded by literary academics as a prominent figure in antebellum Southern literature. He is also renowned for his ardent support for slavery and his hostility to Uncle Tom's Cabin, which prompted him to write critiques and the pro-slavery novel The Sword and the Distaff (1854). During his literary career, he worked as an editor for various journals and newspapers, and he also served in the South Carolina House of Representatives. Simms was born on April 17, 1806, in Charleston, South Carolina, of Scots-Irish forebears. His mother, Harriet Ann Augusta (née Singleton, 1784-1808), died in his infancy, and his father, William Gilmore Simms Senior (1762-1830), failed in business and joined Coffee's Indian fighters. Simms was reared by his maternal grandmother, Jane Miller Singleton Gates, who lived during the American Revolutionary War and told him stories about it. Simms worked as a drugstore clerk during his adolescence and intended to become a doctor. Simms began studying law when he was eighteen (about 1824). In 1841, the University of Alabama awarded him an honorary LLD.
