George Davis, Attorney-General of the Confederate States free pdf Excerpt from George Davis, Attorney-General of the Confederate States: An Address Delivered Before the Supreme Court of North Carolina, October 19, 1915 The names of Roger Moore, of Maurice Moore, of Edward Moseley, and Sam Swann were still familiar in the households of New Hanover when on 1 March, 1820, at Porter's Neck, overlooking the ocean, George Davis was born to his parents, Thomas Frederick Davis and his wife, Sarah Isabella Eagles. He was their youngest child, the eldest, Thomas, born in 1804, being then a student at the University, Junius coming next, and then Ann, afterwards Mrs. Poisson, endowed with unusual intellectual gifts and one of the most charming of her sex. Joseph Eagles, the father of Sarah Isabella, was a gentleman of elegant culture, and she herself was beautifully accomplished, and her children received from her many lovely characteristics. It was thus amid the best social surroundings that the youth of George Davis was passed- nor were the elements of a sturdy patriotism lacking. He himself has drawn this picture: "In my early youth I remember an old man, bowed by age and infirmities, but of noble front and most commanding presence. Old and young gathered around him in love and veneration to listen to his stories of the olden times- and as he spoke of his country's trials, and of the deeds and sufferings of her sons, his eyes flashed with the ardor of youth and his voice rang like the battle charge of a bugle." Impressions such as these, received in boyhood, necessarily left a deep mark on the individuality of George Davis. After being taught by excellent instructors, he was finally prepared for college by Moses A. Curtis, later the distinguished minister and botanist, who was then employed by Governor Dudley as a tutor for his children. How diligent he was as a boy is attested by his entering the University when fourteen and graduating in 1838, having just passed his eighteenth birthday. He shared the first honors of his class with Mr. Cuthbert, and delivered the valedictory. In that address he gave evidence of thought and scholarship. Speaking of the departure of his classmates from the University, he indulged the hope that "we will leave behind us a not unremembered name"- and, doubtless, afterwards that thought was broadened, and the hope became interwoven with his life's work. His brother, Thomas Frederick Davis, was practicing law at Wilmington, and, on graduating, George Davis entered his office and applied himself to the study of the law with the earnest purpose to excel in his profession. Notwithstanding the social allurements of those halcyon days on the Cape Fear, he never abandoned the habit of diligent study formed in youth, but sought to win professional rewards by close application and painstaking preparation, seldom equaled among the lawyers of North Carolina. First and last, he was a student of the law- but he did not neglect that literary culture that contributed to make him an ornament of his profession.
