Biographical Note

Edward Carey Walthall was born on 4 April 1831 in Richmond, Virginia.  While still a child he moved with his family to Holly Springs, Mississippi where he attended the Academy of St. Thomas.  Admitted to the bar in his early twenties, Walthall began his law practice in Coffeeville, Mississippi.  In 1856, he was elected District Attorney of the state's tenth judicial district.  Walthall held this position until he resigned in 1861 to enter the Confederate Army. 

He began his military service as a First Lieutenant of Company H, Fifteenth Mississippi Regiment, but his aptitude soon led to promotion.  By June of 1861, Walthall was a Lieutenant-Colonel and his cool skill holding the defensive line at the Battle of Mill Springs in Kentucky earned him a colonel's rank in the Twenty-Ninth Mississippi.  By December 1862, Walthall had obtained the rank of Brigadier General and again held a defensive position at the Battle of Chickamauga that permitted a retreat in good order.  At the Battle of Nashville, the talented officer commanded the division that prevented yet another disastrous withdrawal.  Participating in all the major battles from Missionary Ridge to Atlanta, Walthall rose to the rank of Major-General by June 1864.

After the war, Walthall returned to his law practice in Coffeeville until 1871 when he moved to Grenada.  Influential in state politics, Walthall served as a delegate to the Democratic National Conventions in 1868, 1876, 1880, 1884, and 1896.  In 1885, Governor Robert Lowry appointed the general to fill the vacancy in the U.S. Senate left by L.Q.C. Lamar's resignation to accepting the office of U.S. Secretary of the Interior.  The state legislature reaffirmed his appointment in all subsequent elections. 

During his Senate tenure, Walthall served on the following committees: Civil Service and Retrenchment; Education and Labor; Public Lands; Revolutionary Claims (becoming its chairman in 1897); Improvement of the Mississippi River and Its Tributaries; Indian Depredations; Organization, Conduct and Expenditures of the Executive Department; and Military Affairs (becoming chairman of this latter committee in 1893).  Along with his colleague J.Z. George, Walthall played a prominent role in the defeat of the 1890 Federal Elections Bill (or, Force Bill) which threatened federal supervision of congressional elections in order to protect African-American suffrage.

In poor health, Walthall resigned from the Senate on 24 January 1894.  His successor, Anselm McLaurin, served in the third session of the Fifty-third Congress from December 1894 to March 1895.  Reelected to the Senate, Walthall served from March 1895 until his death on 21 April 1898.  His last official business in the Senate was delivering the eulogy for his colleague J.Z. George.  Walthall's funeral service took place in that same chamber two weeks later before an assembly that included the President, the Senate, the House, the Supreme Court, and the diplomatic corps.  Transported to Mississippi, his body lies interned in the Holly Spring Cemetery.

In his autobiography, Senator George F. Hoar of Massachusetts wrote "If I were to select the one man of all others with whom I have served in the Senate, who seems to me the most perfect example of the quality and character of the American Senator, I think it would be Edward C. Walthall of Mississippi....He rarely took part in debate.  He was a very modest man.  He left to his associates the duty of advocating his and their opinions, unless he was absolutely compelled by some special reason to do it himself.  When he did speak the Senate listened to a man of great ability, eloquence and dignity."
