This chapter focuses on Georgia's good government veterans—white veterans who organized political reform leagues to challenge the conservative political establishment in communities throughout the state. Good government veterans organized voter registration drives, rallied popular support behind moderate candidates, and blasted local incumbents as impediments to progress. Their agitation generated political shock waves that reverberated across Georgia's cities, towns, and rural communities, and helped draw a historic number of citizens into local and statewide politics after the war.

Keywords:   white veterans, postwar Georgia, political reform, political establishment
