History cares little about those who live it. Some individuals rise to fame while others sink to infamy. Still others labor in relative anonymity, ignored by their generation or forgotten by the next. Were it not for the work of historians who recall them from obscurity, many would remain nameless faces in the great cloud of witnesses. Such a man was Nathaniel Macon Crawford. Once a beloved contemporary of John L. Dagg and William T. Brantly, Crawford labored for decades as a pastor, educator, and Baptist statesmen. Friends remembered the Georgia native fondly. Opponents remembered him respectfully. Yet, all remembered him. That is, until they were remembered no more as well. --Peter Beck
