Strangers to Us All Lawyers and Poetry

Robert Falligant


"Jurist and poet. He was born in Savannah, Ga., in 1839, and was one of the party to seize Harper's Ferry. He was an eloquent advocate at the Bar, full of Irish fire and humor. His best poetic production is entitled 'The Man of the Twelfth of May,' written in commemoration of the gallantry of General John B. Gordon. He died in Savannah, January 3, 1902."
