James Mallory was once an unusual Southerner. so much population of the outdated South, specially the obvious people, committed extra time to leisurely activities--drinking, playing, searching, fishing, and simply loafing--than did Mallory, a workaholic agriculturalist, who experimented with new crops, orchards, and manures, in addition to the newest farming apparatus and methods. A Whig and a Unionist, a temperance guy and a peace lover, bold but being concerned, business-minded and revolutionary, he supported railroad development in addition to formal schooling, even for women. His cotton production--four bales in line with box hand in 1850, approximately two times the typical for the simplest cotton lands in southern Alabama and Georgia--tells extra approximately Mallory's regular paintings conduct than approximately his classification status.

But his most blatant eccentricity--what gave him cause to be remembered--was that almost each day from 1843 till his dying in 1877, Mallory stored an in depth magazine of neighborhood, nationwide, and sometimes international information, agricultural actions, the elements, and particularly occasions concerning his kinfolk, family members, slaves, and buddies in Talladega County, Alabama.

Mallory's magazine spans 3 significant classes of the South's history--the growth years earlier than the Civil conflict, the increase and cave in of the Confederacy, and the interval of Reconstruction after the Civil conflict. He owned slaves and raised cotton, yet Mallory used to be by no means greater than a hardworking farmer, who defined agriculture in poetical language as "the maximum [interest] of all."
