    Excerpt from Sketch of Bishop Atticus G. Haygood

    Atticus Greene Haygood was born at Watkinsville, Georgia, November 19, 1839, and fell asleep at his home in Oxford, Georgia, January 19, 1896. Into the fifty-six years of his life he crowded work enough to have engaged a strong man for more than threescore and ten years. He might have lived longer if he had toiled less intensely. In the active and busy years of his life it was not uncommon for him to omit entirely to retire at night for sleep, working the night through, except for a brief rest on a couch or in a reclining chair.

    His people were of Methodist stock, and at the age of fifteen he became a member of that church. Even in his youth were manifested the marked traits of generosity, will power, and devotion to the church which characterized him as a man. When it was proposed to erect a larger and more commodious house of worship for the congregation in Atlanta of which he was a member, he subscribed, though a mere boy, the sum of twenty-five dollars. He then hired himself to the contractor as a hod-carrier to pay the subscription. With reference to this it has been well said, The young shoulders of the lad, which thus early bowed under the burdens of his church, were never thereafter free.

    In 1856 he matriculated as a Sophomore in Emory College, at Oxford, Georgia, and was graduated with distinction in the Class of 1859. He was associated in college with a number of men who, with him, afterward became in¿uential in the affairs of his church.

    He was admitted into the Georgia Conference of the Metho dist Episcopal Church, South, in the autumn of the year he left college and at the age of twenty years. He at once took high rank in the conference, and from year to year had experience of work in circuits, stations, and districts. During the war he was for a time a chaplain in the Army of Virginia. In later years, at Chautauqua and elsewhere, he was often called upon for addresses to the veterans, alike of the North and of the South.
