HV Johnson (GA-D) is best known for being the Southerner on Douglas's Northern Democrat ticket. Actually, Northern Democrat is misleading. Douglas's ticket was THE Democratic ticket. Southern Democrats bolted and picked their own nominee. A better way to label the parties is Democrat and Independent Democrat or States Rights Democrat. 

His actions:

Johnson, Herschel V 1856 Gov of GA declares a Fremont victory would be a valid reason for secession
Johnson, Herschel V 1860 englaving 115 people, according to the US Census
Johnson, Herschel V 1860 Southerner nominated Dem VP of the Douglas Dem ticket after Fitzpatrick of AL refuses nomination
Johnson, Herschel V 1861 Secedes w/ GA, becoming a CSA sen, although he tried to oppose secession leading up to the split
Johnson, Herschel V 1866 Selected as US Sen of GA but disallowed to take his seat because recently CSA Sen
